Dont Miss the 2015 Earth Day Environmental Fair- Friday, April 24th!


The 2015 Earth Day Environmental Fair is set to take place at the NPS ball field in Cruz Bay on Friday April 24th from 9:00am until 1:00pm. Approximately 550 students from St. John Christian Academy, Gifft Hill School, Head Start, and Julius E. Sprauve School are expected to attend. This year the highlight of the fair will be a Litter Stomp Parade and poster contest, co-sponsored by the V.I. Waste Management Authority and the Friends of V.I. National Park. Students will take to the streets to march from Julius E. Sprauve School to the National Park Ball Field chanting eco-themed songs and holding signs proclaiming their dedication to keeping our island and planet litter free.  


Once at the fair,  students will enjoy various displays and presentations from numerous local organizations. The presentations and exhibits will focus on the fields of natural and cultural resources, renewable energy, recycling, reef preservation, and environmental education. Group representatives will man various booths and present fun, interesting demonstrations. Students will learn about archaeology here on St. John, local seeds and crafts, crush recycled cans, aleternative energy sources, and help document numerous ways to keep St. John pristine for future generations.

 Friends would like to thank Love City Pan Dragons, Concordia Eco Resort, Starfish Market, St. John Ice, Virgin Island Network of Environmental Educators, and Westin Resort & Villas for their generous contributions to all of the events.  

We would also like to thank the many presenters who will be on hand to teach our youth about their fragile island and global environment through creative activities and booths. However, the real appreciation and thanks must go out to the numerous volunteers who donate their time to make these events happen; their involvement and dedication is admirable, and the events would not happen without them. Remember that earth day ideas should continue all year so please be mindful of your footprint on our little island!



Your support is essential to the protection and preservation of Virgin Islands National Park for this, and future generations.
