Mayor Finch Announces City’s ‘Earth Month’ Activities
“This year, we have decided to expand Earth Day to an entire month of events to highlight the City’s efforts in making Bridgeport cleaner, more sustainable and a hub for new ‘green’ businesses while raising awareness for the need to address climate change,” said Mayor Finch.
Earth Month events include community cleanups, garden builds, tree plantings, bike rides and the groundbreaking for the largest fuel cell energy project in North America.
