Earth Day events in Volusia County and Beyond 2017

Earthday

April 22nd is Earth Day! It's a great day to get the kids outside and explore and/or attend one of the Earth Day activities that will be taking place in Volusia County and in surrounding counties. It's important to teach kids to care about the planet and get to know nature more.

Here are some Earth Day activities and ideas for the Volusia County and surrounding areas:

  • Take a hike, bike ride, and picnic (any day) - Check out the list of great local places where you can get out on a trail with the kids, or take a bike ride on a paved trail. Pack a picnic lunch and have some family fun!
  • Earth Day Fun (April 20) - Free event offered at Lyonia Environmental Center in Deltona. 
  • Central Florida Earth Day (April 22)- A great Earth Day festival where the food and the containers it is served up in is eco-friendly. The family can eat, be entertained, and have fun at this yearly event.

2017 Easter and Spring Events in Volusia County

Easter

Easter is April 16, 2017

Ready to take the kids to some spring and Easter events? You are in luck! There are plenty of them to choose from and something for everyone across the county. This list is a work in progress and more things will be added as they become available. Check back often to see what has been added!

The plastic Easter eggs that people use are generally not biodegradable. Please save them to donate back to the place doing the egg hunt, put them in one bag and donate them to a thrift store, give them to a teacher, or reuse them yourself. If you do not need them please don't trash them. Plastic pretty much stays in the environment forever, so we need to do what we can to reduce, reuse, and recycle the millions of plastic eggs used each spring around the country! There are environmentally friendly versions available (here), but it may be a little late to order them. Keep it in mind for next year. Here is an article on having a environmentally friendlier Easter.

Note: Most of these celebrations are free family event. Donations may be appreciated. Also, your child should take a basket to put their eggs in during the hunt. Some Easter egg hunts are divided by age groups (so that a 4 year old is not doing it with a 12 year old).

 This list will be updated as more information becomes available... so check back again!
