How you can help

There are so many ways you can help us continue to grow our Earth Day Celebrations ! The main thing we need each year is your participation. If you are an organization or an individual with an interest in helping to keep our planet and the local environment healthy for our children and grandchildren, we welcome you to contact us about how you can participate in making the event both educational and worthwhile for all involved.

Another thing we seek each year are sponsors to help cover the costs of making the event filled with activities, learning and fun for the entire community! Our Earth Day celebrations are always offered free to the public and all are welcome! We are a non-profit organization so we rely upon the generosity of our sponsors. If you are passionate about the health of our community and our planet, why not become a sponsor? Your sponsorship dollars are not only greatly appreciated but are tax deductible!

We couldn't begin to take on the large job of creating an Earth Day Celebration without the help of our many volunteers. We always need speakers, programs and presentations. In addition, you can volunteer in a number of other ways. When we have in-person events, our volunteers help us with everything from setting up and taking down tables and display areas, to helping at tables for door prizes or just keeping us organized throughout the day, indoors or outside. If you enjoy working with children, we have children's games and craft activities. We encourage you to sign up to volunteer if you have a passion for the planet and our community. Its a great way to give back while working with some wonderful people! If you're curious but not yet ready to commit, please use our contact information listed below to ask any questions you may have. Thank you in advance for all your help!
