Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, the Earth Day/Arbor Day celebration scheduled for April 23 has been canceled in support of slowing the spread of the highly contagious virus. For the latest community and COVID-19 updates, visit SantaClaraCA.gov/CoronavirusUpdates.
Although we cannot gather together to celebrate Earth Day/Arbor Day, Santa Clarans can still show their appreciation for nature, the environment and the world by making positive changes at home. We created some videos to help Santa Clara residents celebrate Earth Day/Arbor Day virtually.
Watch Santa Clara Mayor, Lisa M. Gillmor, kick off our virtual Earth Day/Arbor Day.
