Project Roadmap: Earth Day

Step 1: Pick your location

The location for your Earth Day celebration depends on whom you are celebrating with. Depending on your location, you are more than able to combine project ideas. For instance, if you have your event on a playground:

  • Playground cleanup
  • Set up an area for Earth Day arts & crafts
  • Plant new trees
  • Town wide celebration

Step 2: Set a date and time

APRIL 22ed is the official Earth Day date; however do not feel limited to just celebrating on the 22ed. Celebrating the weekend before (April 19-April 20) or the weekend after (April 26-April 27) is a great option too!
