Earth Day!
We are days away from celebrating mother Earth and we are committed to Earth Day in a big way! This year, Villagers of all ages are invited to take part in a wide range of green activities -- all free to the public – to celebrate Earth Day.

Earth Day activities have been organized into one very eventful day full of family-fun activities on Saturday, April 22. Enjoy a free tree giveaway, escorted bike ride, a discovery/nature walk, animal encounter, family yoga demo, live band by Miami Palmetto Senior High School Jazz Band students, animal adoptions by Miami-Dade County HOPE Express, an eco-movie (Ice Age: Collision Course).

On Sunday, April 23 we are closing the celebration with a coastal clean-up aboard kayaks.  To register for these events or for more information, please click here.
