Today is Earth Day, and for the second year in a row Alexandria is celebrating virtually.
The theme of the 51st annual celebration is “Restore Our Earth,” and residents are encouraged to participate with projects on the city website, including restoration efforts around water, land, air quality and climate.
Today, the City and AlexRenew celebrate Earth Day with a special collection of resources, including actions for a more environmentally friendly lifestyle. Details: https://t.co/fmgHDXoPRZ.
