Earth Day will include the broadest diversity of environmental issues and provide a venue for leading stakeholders (organizations, businesses, agencies, artisans and others) making a difference for our environment.

We have a commitment to inclusion which is why our event is free. As funds are available we provide financial aid to worthy organizations that can't afford the exhibition fees. Earth Day Marin will serve as a convenient and enjoyable place for families, individuals and groups throughout the county to learn what they can do to create the positive environmentally sound future we all deserve.

The event will highlight our many local and sustainable resources and offer practical take home skills and information as well as many fun and inspiring ways to learn about the environment. We are interested in presenting the wide variety of approaches to making progress across the range of environmental issues as well as highlighting innovators and new ways to make a difference.

Earth Day Marin publishes a print and online resource guide that includes the leading organizations, businesses, agencies and others supporting environmental sustainability and health and serving Marin County.
