Earth Day Texas 2016, at Fair Park in Dallas, Texas.

At EarthX, we believe in the importance of creating and supporting the innovations that will bring us a more sustainable future for the next generation. That is why we have included fun and interactive events and exhibits for children and families to get involved. It is also one of the reasons why we made admission for our event completely free so that the whole family can attend! Check out our top five picks for a family-friendly and eco-friendly weekend at Earth Day Texas!

 

Tree Climbers International

Earth Day Texas 2016, at Fair Park in Dallas, Texas.

Learn to climb a tree rope and harness style! Join the Arborilogical Services and their professional tree climbing instructors for a day of learning about the beautiful and historic oak trees of Fair Park while climbing to the top of one. This interactive exhibit will be at the Court of Honor near the Hall of State building. Bring your camera; your child is sure to be smiling in their harness!

It’s an animal house!

From cheetahs to kangaroos, giant tortoises to chinchillas, we have a spectacular lineup of furry friends coming to EarthX!  Next walk over to the petting zoo where you and your child can get up close and personal with the cutest four-legged friends. The Dallas Zoo will also be joining the festivities bringing a cheetah, an anteater and a sloth! 

 

EarthxFilm

Catch one of our family-friendly screenings. This educational film festival features a variety of amazing films by creators from all over the world. Like the “Flight of the Butterflies” film where you can watch millions of butterflies on an amazing journey to a remote and secret hideaway, and one scientist’s 40-year search to unravel the mystery of their travels. The film is only 15 minutes long and will be shown every 30 minutes all weekend long. 

There is something for everyone at EarthX 2018. Head to Fair Park, April 20-22, for an eco-friendly weekend with the family. Admission is FREE with registration!

Pro tip: Lower your carbon footprint even more and take your green weekend one step further by taking the Dart to Fair Park. Save on parking too!
