Discover how you (and your students) can celebrate our planet.


Lesson plans abound for Earth Day, whether you’re a science teacher or National Honor Society advisor. (See some of our favorites here from Education World, the National Education Association, and Edutopia.)

There are plenty of additional opportunities to celebrate (and learn!) across the state once the school day’s over. We’ve rounded up a handful of Earth Day events from Tucson to Flagstaff.

Earth Day Phoenix

11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Ride your bike to Indian Steele Park for eco-exhibits and classes — all waste-free! Fair warning: There is no parking on-site.

Earth Day at the Phoenix Zoo

9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Walk the zoo and learn (even more than usual!) about how to protect our planet and its animals. Learn about water and energy conservation, recycling, and more.

Flagstaff Earth Day

9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

2016’s Earth Day celebration kicked off with 148 hours of community service, then an afternoon event with more than 1,600 attendees. Head to Heritage Square for a community clean up, live performances, upcycled fashion show, and vendors.

Tucson Earth Day Festival

10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This festival and parade, in collaboration with the Tucson Children’s Museum, has been celebrating the Earth since 1995.

Planet Celebration at the Desert Botanical Garden

April 15

9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The garden’s third annual Earth Day event explores how humans can build stronger connections with our planet. Discover the latest in sustainability and conservation, while exploring the Butterfly Pavilion, taking a docent-led garden tour, and experiencing the Horticulture Campus.
