Earth Day Bay Day


Thank you to the nearly 8,000 folks that came out to celebrate our FREE 23rd annual Earth Day-Bay Day, Saturday, April 9th at Heritage Park in Corpus Christi, TX! This family-friendly event promotes and encourage citizens to learn about our bays and estuaries, wetlands, native plants and animals, recycling, sustainability, conservation and other environmental issues all through interactive activities that our amazing 60-plus exhibitors provided in addition to wildlife presentations and tasty food. We hope you can join us again at next year’s festival on April 22, 2023 back at Heritage Park.
