Support EarthFest

Our Mission

Temple University Ambler EarthFest is an outdoor education festival held in celebration of Earth Day. The mission of EarthFest is to promote environmental awareness using sustainable concepts, methods, and practices to protect and preserve our environment. Organizations, businesses, students of all ages and individuals demonstrate sustainable concepts and technologies and provide interactive educational displays, activities and much more!

The Center for Sustainable Communities at Temple University Ambler is proud to host this event for the general public and students of all levels.

When EarthFest began in 2003, the event was attended by approximately 1,500 attendees and 50 exhibitors. It has grown ever since. Each year this educational festival continues to grow and reach more and more children, educators, businesses, organizations and communities in the region.

EarthFest is one of the most successful and highly anticipated events of the year at Temple University Ambler. It is central to our core values of student-centered learning, respect for the environment, and community engagement. Thousands of students from all over the region come together and spend time learning about the world in which we live and the interconnected systems on which the lives of people and animals depend.

More than 85 exhibitors, ranging from non-profit watershed groups to for-profit businesses and high school, middle school and elementary school student organizations, present their projects and ideas in ways that intrigue and attract young people. There is perhaps no other environmental event in the region that accomplishes this much in a single day.

In 2017, we hope to continue expanding this educational festival. The Franklin Institute, the Academy of Natural Sciences, the Philadelphia Zoo, The Insectarium, the Elmwood Park Zoo, FEMA and dozens of other exhibitors are expected to commit to being a part of EarthFest 2017.

EarthFest carries a significant operating cost, in excess of $45,000. Sponsorship gifts offset that cost, enabling us to enhance access to EarthFest for many students, teachers, and community residents throughout the region. Most participating schools have made the event a yearly highlight of their science curricula. One reason so many schools are able to participate in EarthFest is that we have never charged attendees — schools pay nothing beyond the cost of their own transportation. The high quality of the event and its affordability keep past participants coming back and encourage additional schools to attend each year!
