Oak Island NC Earth Day
On April 20, Middleton Park in Oak Island at 4601 East Oak Island Drive will be the site for a free event to celebrate Earth Day 2018. It's designed to provide both fun and education for residents and visitors of all ages about the environmental challenges we face in Brunswick County.  

Oak Island Earth Day Celebration

The Oak Island Earth Day event will feature conservation groups from the area who will offer interactive exhibits, educational information, and displays, as well as food and entertainment. It is sure to be a rewarding experience for everyone who attends. The event will run from 10 AM to 2 PM.

This Earth Day celebration is sponsored by the Oak Island Parks & Recreation Department. It's part of an international effort to raise awareness about our environment and to inform people how they can make a difference. The Ft. Fisher Aquarium outreach program, Sea Biscuit Bird Rescue, NC Coastal Federation, beekeepers and other groups large and small will be on hand with activities for kids and adults alike.

We're not alone in hosting an activity like this. Over 1 billion people in nearly 200 countries around the world are expected to participate in this year's Earth Day. Growing our local consciousness is an effort that is embraced wholeheartedly by our community, and it's just one of the things the team at Margaret Rudd & Associates, Inc. loves about Oak Island.

Earth Day Facts -- Did You Know

  • The first Earth Day was April 22, 1970. Vietnam was raging, gas-guzzling autos were getting bigger and bigger, and a massive oil spill off the coast of California had raised awareness that our dependence on oil was threatening the environment and that something had to be done.

  • Earth Day 1970 is considered to have been the day that launched environmental activism and ultimately led to the passage of the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act.

  • College students, who had been mobilized through protests against the war, latched onto the concept of protecting the Earth, and colleges from coast to coast staged protests and awareness events that made national news and educated millions, and that awareness has continued to grow.

  • The first Earth Day had widespread bipartisan support in America. It was a cause that everyone could get behind, and it didn't matter what your political leanings, because it was about saving the planet.
