Earth Day Celebrations

Each Spring from 2010 through 2015 the Partnership for Floyd presented an Earth Day event. Environmentally oriented businesses, organizations and individuals shared their knowledge and products with the community. It was a free and fun day for the entire family. The events have taken place at both Floyd County High School and the Floyd EcoVillage.
