Celebrating Earth Day in the Natural State

Earth Day

Birds chirping, wind chimes tinkling, and babbling water are all common sounds of springtime, especially in Arkansas. Speaking of Spring, nature’s favorite holiday is just around the corner – Earth Day! Every day is Earth Day for your friends at Clark Exterminating – we specialize in ridding the bad bugs and keeping or simply relocating the good ones so your home can thrive in its Natural State. Our professionals have rounded up a list of ways to celebrate our beautiful planet this weekend.

Get Outdoors

Pinnacle Mountain State Park is hosting an Earth Day celebration this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The best part about it? It’s FREE; join in on the fun sharing eco-friendly ideas, joining the tree planting ceremony, and partaking in their recycling, reusing, and repurposing activity. Located at the West Summit Picnic Area, you can ensure our home is a happy and healthy place for all with your fellow Arkansans.

Early Bird Special
Can’t wait until April 22nd to celebrate? UA Little Rock is throwing an Earth Day celebration one day early: April 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of the Ottenheimer Library. Students, faculty, staff, and the community are encouraged to participate in activities such as collecting electronics for recycling, playing games, doing yoga, and more. Food trucks will provide local cuisine during lunch hours and local items will also be for sale.

Craft Beer and Gourmet Food
From 12 to 6 p.m. this Saturday, you can enjoy local eats and craft brews while simultaneously supporting your community. Learn more about the vibrant greater Little Rock area food scene while soaking up the sun at the Outlets of Little Rock. Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 a day (food and beer sold separately).

 

Plants, Plants, Plants
Reduce, reuse, recycle – you’ve probably heard those words since you were a child. But they are crucial in the process of saving our planet! The Little Rock Audubon Center is hosting a Native Plant Market this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Native plants will be available for purchase from vendors who specialize in Arkansas natives. The event will be rain or shine and tickets are $5 per person. 

Whether you choose to head out to one of these local events to celebrate Earth Day, or you decide to stay home and enjoy your natural surroundings in peace and quiet, do something worthwhile for our natural community. If you experience any issues with bugs or pests in your home or are concerned about a new “neighbor,” call your friends at Clark Exterminating. Don’t forget – we offer FREE in-home estimates!
