April 2022 - Parks & Recreation - 48

EARTH DAY
ers, classmates, friends or even
alone can connect you to nature in
your park. Before 2020, there were
often gatherings of thousands of
people at Shelby Farms Park to
celebrate and showcase local environmental
organizations and
governmental initiatives. In 2021,
due to COVID-19, Shelby Farms
Park pivoted to virtual showcases,
outdoor events and volunteer
days. " At 4,500 acres, Shelby
Farms Park is one of the largest urban
parks in the country. Located
in Memphis, Tennessee, the Park
is both a vibrant community hub
and a retreat from the hustle and
bustle of urban life. Public parks
like Shelby Farms Park play an
important role in creating a just
and equitable community for
all. Whether you play the Park
on foot, on wheels, in the trees, in
the open or on the water, Shelby
Farms Park has something for
everyone, " according to the Shelby
Farms Park website (tinyurl.com/
mry3faak). Staff at Shelby Farms
Park carry the spirit of Earth Day
through the month of April. One
goal they have for the month is
to attract corporate sponsors that
contribute enough to cover the
festivities and invest in the daily
maintenance of the property. Here
is a sample of Shelby Farms Park's
2021 activities and events scheduled
to celebrate Earth Day:
* Want to learn more about the businesses
and organizations that are
helping Memphis have a greener
future? Join Facebook for a virtual
panel featuring local sustainability
leaders today, April 22, at 5:30 p.m.!
* Want to volunteer in honor of
Earth Day? We could use helping
hands to spread mulch this Saturday,
April 24 at 8 a.m.! Thank you very

* Have you " herd " about our
Porch Chats? Learn about the
Park's iconic buffalo herd from the
Rangers that take care of them!

Front Porch at the First Horizon
Foundation Visitor Center for an
informal chat as they share info
and fun facts about our herd this
Sunday, April 25 at 11 a.m.!
* Reduce - Reuse - Recycle - Help us
give the bikes in our old rental fleet
new lives! These used bikes have
spent a lot of time on the trails, but
they still have some life left in them!
We'll have 50+ bikes for sale, along
with some accessories and parts. Proceeds
from this bike sale will help offset
the cost of our new rental fleet!
Crafting a Successful
Earth Day

partnerships
and
programs ripe with success.

enjoy the parks
