Earth Day 2018 Starts in
Summary from 2017’s Earth Day
The 6th Annual Earth Day Community Celebration co-sponsored by Indianapolis Power & Light Company and Citizens Energy Group returns with hands-on, environmentally-friendly activities by 30+ exhibitors and a picnic area (see list of activities below) with live music on the WTTS stage and food trucks.
