WESTFIELD TO CELEBRATE “GREEN DAY” ON APRIL 21

Westfield, IN – The City of Westfield’s celebration of Earth Day and Arbor Day have combined into its new “Green Day” event to be held on Saturday, April 21st at Freedom Trail Park. Attendees can learn helpful tips about prairies and also volunteer to maintain the prairie land at the park.

 

A Tree Seedling Giveaway will be held from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. with 600 seedlings containing five varieties of tree available on a first-come, first-served basis (while supplies last). Two workshops about native tall prairie grasses will be held at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. with prairie maintenance volunteer opportunities immediately following.

 

“Last year, we launched ‘Westfield Green’ to encourage environmental awareness,” said Westfield Mayor Andy Cook. “This event is a continuation of that initiative to involve the community in our environmental efforts.”

Representatives from area organizations will also have informational booths at the event, including Westfield Storm Water, Westfield Community Events & Engagement, Westfield Parks Department, Hamilton County Parks and Recreation, Westfield Farmers Market, Westfield Green Together, Hoosier Environmental Council and Hamilton County Soil and Water-Urban Conservationist.

 

Westfield was named a 2017 Aim Green Community of the Year and has been recognized annually as a Tree City USA since 2007.
