The Milford Earth Day 2023 celebration will offer an excellent opportunity to network with other sustainability-minded organizations and connect with local citizens who are ready to be engaged and inspired by all the ways we can help protect the planet.
This event will take place on the Milford Green between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 22, 2023. Plenty of space is available for exhibitors to set up. There is no fee required, but we ask exhibitors to supply their own tables, chairs, tents, and exhibit materials. Please note nothing be staked into the ground on the Milford Green.
We welcome neighborhood clubs, civic organizations, nonprofits, for-profit organizations, artists, and other local groups/individuals to help us celebrate nature's bounty and ensure a resilient, beautiful, and healthy future for Milford.
Exhibits should a) be focused on sustainable activities; b) embody the spirit of minimal waste-this means no giveaway promotional items or disposable trinkets or containers; and c) to some degree, be interactive. (Note: "interactive" can include conversations with the public, posters or displays that invite the public to add information, quizzes such as crosswords, games, or hands-on demonstrations-feel free to consult our organizers for tips.)

Local environmental volunteer opportunities
