Earth Day Celebrations 2019
With April showers comes Earth Day, a time to celebrate our environment and re-examine our effect on the world around us. Though Earth Day itself fell on April 22nd, environmental celebrations span the entirety of April and showcase a commitment to a cleaner and healthier planet.
This April, LCF was once again a part of LSU’s Louisiana Earth Day festivities on Sunday, April 28th. The event, held at the Parker Colosseum, featured over 70 exhibitors offering various activities and exhibits relating to studying or taking care of the environment. LCF hosted an EV Alley right outside of Parker Colosseum for visitors to get a firsthand look at some popular electric vehicles and learn more about EVs. EV Alley 2019 featured Tesla models S, 3, and X along with a Honda Clarity, a Chevy Volt, and a Jaguar iPace. Visitors were able to check out the vehicles’ features and chat with the owners to learn more about what owning an EV or hybrid is like.
The event was a success, with many coming out to visit the booths inside Parker Colosseum and take a stroll down EV Alley. Many curious visitors had questions about EVs and the realities of owning one that LCF staff and the vehicle owners were able to answer. Some had never seen what’s under the hood of an EV or hybrid and were curious about how they worked compared to a traditional gasoline-running vehicle. LCF’s Executive Director, Ann Vail, even did an interview with WBRZ about EV Alley and the Earth Day festivities.
While LCF has been celebrating Earth Day at LSU, our member organizations have been mounting their own Earth Day celebrations and promotions this month.
