Welcome to the County of San Diego Land Use & Environment Group’s virtual Earth Day fair.  We hope you enjoy the variety of Earth Day activities assembled here to celebrate Mother Nature and all we can do to protect and preserve our natural environment. We look forward to celebrating with you in person again next year.

This site offers something for everyone from GIF and coloring contests, to Facebook Live park events, virtual hikes, science and technology activities, e-book collections, and proactive ways to pledge your support to Mother Earth!

Our Climate Action Plan is committed to reducing climate impacts and preserving our region’s natural beauty.  Together, we can help improve air quality, protect our watersheds, recycle more and use less.

Happy Earth Day 2020!
