Earth Day Activities

Held in the shadow of Missouri's historic Capitol, Earth Day 2015 will offer a variety of fun and educational opportunities for students interested in finding out more about how they can improve the world around them.

  • Live stage presentations – Educational stage games (with prizes), live music and more.
  • More exhibitors – Earth Day 2015 will feature exhibits from the Department of Natural Resources as well as other state, federal and local agencies. Central Missouri is also rich in colleges and universities, and we’re reaching out to pull them into Earth Day 2015.
  • Hands-on crafts from recycled materials – This popular Earth Day feature will return by popular demand.
  • The Teachers’ Resource Tent – This special area for teachers will be available across from the registration tent. Teachers will see the latest in educational offerings from the Department of Natural Resources and many of our state, local and university exhibitors.

Slogan "Our Missouri Waters – Go With the Flow"

Congratulations to this year's winner, Lauren Parker, a fifth grade student in Ms. Tipton's class at Southern Boone Elementary School in Ashland. Lauren will be presented with a proclamation and a $50 gift card donated by Central Bank, 238 Madison Street, Jefferson City.
