HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The City of Hattiesburg celebrated Earth Day Saturday by hosting an annual free event to help local residents learn how to care for and clean up the environment. An Earth Day Environmental Fair at Town Square Park featured information on recycling, landscaping and water and energy conservation.

Free food and entertainment was provided.

"One of the reasons that we do this is to highlight the need to be good stewards to our earth," said Ann Jones, general manager of parks and recreation for the City of Hattiesburg. "We only have one environment to live in and we need to take care of it for ourselves and certainly, for our children," Jones said.

This was the third year for the event.
