Local News

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Savannah is celebrating Earth Day, not just on April 22, but all month long.

Organized by the Savannah-Chatham Sustainability Coalition (SCSC), “Earth Day Savannah Month” features virtual and small, in-person events.

SCSC is also be working with Savannah’s Office of Sustainability to promote the city’s Clean Energy Resolution, an initiative to transition to clean, renewable energy. The city says the resolution will increase economic opportunity, protect Savannah’s natural environment, improve community health and well-being. Take a survey to help the initiative HERE.

There are recurring events throughout the month, including Manifesting Mobile pop-ups, nature walks with UGA Marine Education Center & Aquariums and guided virtual tours through Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary.

“We have over 20 environmental nonprofits doing work in the Chatham County area, and that is something to be celebrated and recognized,” Executive Director of SCSC Joanne Morton said.

“And I think that’s why this calendar of events is so important. We’re going to reach more people versus just having it in a park on one day. It’s all about education,” she added.

The Savannah Children’s Museum is also hosting Earth Week from April 17 through April 24.

“I think that’s what shows up here in Savannah,” Morton said. “There’s this love of our marsh. There’s a love of our beaches. We love our trees and we love our people. And we take care of what we love. We want to make Earth Day every day.”
