The Milford Environmental Concerns Coalition (ECC) will host an Earth Day 2023 celebration on Saturday, April 22 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on the famous downtown Milford Green.
This family-oriented event is free to the public, and will feature numerous how-to exhibits including recycling, composting, and how to start your own “plogging” club. There will also be numerous activities for children. Sweet Louise & the Monkey River Band will perform from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The ECC welcomes nonprofit environmental groups, musicians, artists, educators, civic organizations and businesses to to set up a table.
