How Did Westmoreland Earth Day Begin?
In 2002, a group of environmental organizations gathered to create an event that would engage the surrounding community in their many activities. The result was Westmoreland Earth Day, a family focused event now in its fifteenth year. Westmoreland Earth Day brings together organization and companies to demonstrate and share information and activities with the community. These exhibitors are representatives of non-profit groups, state and federal organizations and local businesses all working to protect, restore and enhance the environment in your area!
