Fairfield’s Earth Day Celebration 2020 Events

While our Earth Day celebration in 2020 was not held in the usual format in-person due to COVID-19, we have the benefit of being able to re-watch online events whenever we want and as often as we like.

Please enjoy our webinars and concert held between April 20-26, 2020. Hit the “like” button on YouTube and subscribe to our channel to view more content on a regular basis.

As you know, our Earth is the only home we have, and protecting, preserving, and celebrating it should not end here. Every day is Earth Day. Enjoy!
