Join us at an upcoming event.
Given the success of the Earth Day event every year and the continued enthusiasm from the community in caring for shared open space, SPLT—in partnership with the South Portland Parks Department—is excited to announce Earth Week 2019: an eight-day series of environmental activities!
Come enjoy the afternoon in Hinckley Park from 2:00 - 3:00 pm for a nature-based Scavenger Hunt! Fun for the whole family, this event will get you exploring the park and seeing past the obvious!
Come connect with nature with a short walk through Hinckley Park. The walk will be guided by our own, Chelsea Scudder! We will make stops along the walk and consider some writing prompts.
Earth Day Tree Planting at South Portland High School carried out by students of SPHS and Earth Day school-based programming/activities carried out by schools throughout the city.
Join us at South Portland High School to celebrate Earth Week by viewing three inspiring nature films. Free and open to the public. Showing "Negotiating with Nature" followed by an open discussion with film creator Stefan van Norden!
