Happy Earth Day!


Today is a day to celebrate this pretty planet of ours by putting a focus on global efforts to protect and sustain nature's most important resources. While Earth Day is celebrated on April 22, we like to treat every day like Earth Day at Shelby Farms Park! Sustainability is at the heart of all Park operations⏤in projects as large as designing our Visitor Center and Event Center to meet LEED Silver Certification to hosting small-scale volunteer cleanups, Shelby Farms Park Conservancy works hard to keep the Park green at every level!

Check out our 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 us on Facebook for a virtual panel featuring local sustainability leaders today, April 22, at 5:30pm!

Have you "herd" about our Porch Chats? Learn about the Park’s iconic buffalo herd from the Rangers that take care of them! Meet our Rangers on the AutoZone 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 11am!

Reduce - Reuse - Re-Cycle - 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. Learn more here! Proceeds from this bike sale will help offset the cost of our new rental fleet!

Thanks to our Celebrate Earth Day partners!
