Conveniently located along Irvin Avenue (near the PATCO speedline), the event lasts from 9am to 2pm– but the impact of the day remains well beyond that timeframe.

“Green Day invites us to expand upon our role in stewardship of our earth, to practice earth-friendly living in our homes and community and to teach our children how precious our resources are ” said Commissioner Joan Leonard.
