Earth Day may have been celebrated on April 22nd, but that hasn’t stopped several conservation groups in Birmingham from turning it into a week-long party.
Beginning tonight, Thursday, April 25th groups such as the Alabama Environmental Council will be holding events across the area.
Check out the calendar – and make plans to celebrate Earth Day everyday this week.
Here is the latest schedule of events.
