The 44th Annual Earth Day &
75th Diamond Jubilee for the Alabama State Parks
Monte Sano State Park
Sunday April 27th, 1-5 p.m.
The first Earth Day in 1970 rallied over 20 million Americans from around the country and on college campuses to get involved in environmental "teach-ins." Conceptualized by Gaylord Nelson and organized by Denis Hayes, Earth Day events featured the largest grassroots mobilization in US history. Out of these events emerged what has come to be known as the environmental movement and the first environmental legislation - the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts and the EPA soon after. Due in large part to the efforts of hundreds of local organizers, Earth Day is now an anticipated annual event in April.
The Flint River Conservation Association, and Friends of Monte Sano State Park, invite you to the 44th Earth Day Celebration at Monte Sano State Park come through the entry gate off of Nolen Avenue. The Monte Sano State Park is a beautiful venue in April, as it is the best month of the year for wildflowers. The Park is celebrating its 75th year since it was built by the CCC and then opened to the public.
Call our park office for overnight reservations (256) 534-3757. Stay in one of our quaint, rustic cozy cottages or in the modern campground; where you will be provided with an unforgettable view!
