Join the Coastal Bend Bays Foundation to celebrate the 23rd annual Earth Day Bay Day, Saturday, April 9, at Heritage Park in Corpus Christi. The Coastal Bend Bays Foundation hosts this free festival each year to raise awareness of the need for stewardship of the area’s natural resources — this year, it’s back in person.
The popular event provides education and outreach in a fun, family environment that’s FREE for all Coastal Bend residents and others visiting Texas’ “Sparkling City by the Sea.” Since 1999, the CBBF has hosted this local event to help promote and encourage citizens to learn about our bays and estuaries, wetlands, native plants and animals, recycling, sustainability, conservation and other environmental issues through interactive activities and local exhibitors.
Earth Day Bay Day has all sorts of things to do and see, such as educational activities and giveaways for all ages, food, animal exhibits and more. Follow the latest updates on Facebook and on the website. Thanks to event sponsors, the 2023 Earth Day Bay Day celebration will feature the following fun activities.
