Alexandria celebrates Earth Day virtually

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.

The City and AlexRenew also partnered with Alexandria City Public Schools to showcase 140 Earth Day-related student artwork submissions from Matthew Maury Elementary School, Mount Vernon Community School, Lyles-Crouch Traditional Academy, Jefferson-Houston PreK-8 IB School, Douglas MacArthur Elementary School, and George Washington Middle School.

Their art projects are featured on a video below.
