Earth Week 2016
Palmetto Bay is committed to Earth Day in such a big way, we take a full week to celebrate. Each year, Villagers of all ages invited to take part in a wide range of green activities -- all free to the public -- during the week around Earth Day, April 22.

We are looking for 5th graders from local schools in the Village to participate in our annual poster contest themed “Trees for the Earth.” Village officials will visit the winning school for a tree-planting ceremony. See contest rules  here .  Deadline is April 8th at noon!
