Earth Day Savannah Month 2021


The History of Earth Day Savannah

Every Spring in April since 2000, Savannah has celebrated Earth Day.   It is a celebration of our community’s environmental responsibility towards living and conducting business in coastal Georgia. Earth Day Savannah has served since 2000 as an important opportunity for local government, businesses, non-profits, and community groups to connect with the public and each other. It is the City’s largest environmental outreach event of the year, and the largest educational Earth Day related event in Georgia!

2000-2018:   In the heart of the historic district, the 30-acre Forsyth Park became the nucleus of the city’s green initiatives.

2019:  The Earth Day Festival moved to Daffin Park. 


2021:  Savannah Chatham Sustainability Coalition partnered with over 20 local nonprofits and 12 businesses to co-coordinate and publicize “Earth Day Savannah Month.” This month-long celebration, which included an online calendar of events, was a successful, safe way for businesses and environmental nonprofits to connect with the public and strengthen the environmental network in our community.


 2022:  City of Savannah launch of the 100% Savannah Clean Energy initiative.
