Celebrate Earth Day and FutureFest with Phipps!

by Lorren Kezmoh


Don’t have plans for Earth Day just yet? Stop by Phipps!

What better way to celebrate the big, blue planet that we call home than by visiting some of the greenest buildings on it and surrounding yourself with some of the most exotic foliage that covers it! Come and see firsthand how our horticulturalists put together each of our stunning flower shows and take a sneak peek at our long-awaited Summer Flower Show, which officially opens May 2nd, and the return of our four-winged friends in Butterfly Forest.

But, if you can’t make it to Phipps this Wednesday for Earth Day, don’t fret! Phipps will also be hosting FutureFest 2015 Saturday, April 25th from 10:00am to 4:00pm on the front lawn of the conservatory. Get a glimpse of the world of tomorrow through art, demonstrations, performances, science and hands-on activities for all ages — from scavenger hunts to craft stations! A large, free public festival, FutureFest 2015 is the result of collaboration between several stakeholder organizations, working across different sectors, with the same goal of celebrating and promoting Pittsburgh’s vision of an achievable, sustainable future.


For more information about the festival and to view the full schedule of events, please visit FutureFest 2015.
