Northbrook Celebrates Earth and Arbor Day
Northbrook’s Earth & Arbor Day Celebration will be held from 8:30 a.m. to noon, April 21, on the Village Green in Downtown Northbrook. As part of the Green Expo, the village of Northbrook and the Northbrook Park District are hosting 50 vendors with Earth-friendly products, ideas and concepts for home or business.
Clean-up teams will meet at 8:30 a.m. on the Village Green, and each team will be assigned specific areas to collect debris and windblown trash. Look for the special sign and win a prize. Between 9 a.m. and noon, attendees can enjoy the exhibits, information on living green, demonstrations, giveaways, free tree seedlings, pony rides, children’s activities and entertainment.
Northbrook residents are encouraged to participate in the special recycling collection and document shredding event in the west side commuter parking lot by the METRA station.
