Geneva Earth Day Celebration Scheduled For April 22

Families will be celebrating 10 years of going green in Geneva with another fun-filled Earth Day event in store Saturday, April 22 at Peck Farm Park, 4038 Kaneville Road.

The Earth Day festivities, which will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., are sponsored by the City’s Natural Resources Committee and the Geneva Park District. Residents can purchase rain barrels, receive a bicycle safety check, learn best green practices from vendors, shred documents for free, drop off clean No. 6 Styrofoam and pick up a free tomato plant.

Stop by the Geneva Public Library’s table for the “take a book or leave a book” program. The “reading green” idea asks people to bring a gently used book from home and exchange it for another used book of their choice.

People also can clean out their closets by recycling their shoes with Jolly Old Soles, which provides new and used shoes to local organizations helping needy families. US Again will accept old textiles at the Earth Day event. No rugs or carpets will be accepted.

Electronics recycling will occur this year at the event through the Kane County Recycles program. All monitors will be accepted at a cost of $25 or $35 each based on size. Cash payments only will be accepted.

Other Earth Day highlights include a small petting zoo, chalk art, children’s activities, chair massages and more. Families also are invited to walk Peck Farm to enjoy the natural surroundings. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

For more information about Earth Day, call the Geneva Park District at 630-262-8244 or visit their website. People can learn more about Geneva’s Natural Resources Committee by visiting the City’s website or the group's Facebook page.
