Earth Day 2017

Earth Day is approaching soon April 22,2017, and we will be participating in March for Science with the St. Pete Earth Day. We encourage you to come out and March with us on that day to celebrate science! We will have a non-profit vendor booth set up at Historic Williams Park in St. Pete. We are very excited to have a central booth location to meet at, and be there to support the March for Science, Earth Day, and our fellow members and future members of ACS. Festivals start at 10:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m., and a concert for the Earth is from 5:00 p.m. to 10 p.m.
