Earth Day festival this weekend

WFTX - Across the nation, more than 1 billion people will honor planet Earth this weekend.

First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day, according to the Earth Day Network (EDN), is now a global observance with more than 1 billion participants. Born out of the spirit of the 1960’s anti-war movement, Earth Day was founded by Wisconsin senator Gaylord Nelson, who made use of that energy to raise awareness of the need for a greener ethos and consciousness.

Head to Koreshan State Park in Estero this Saturday, the 20th from 10am - 4pm to celebrate Southwest Florida style!
