Earth Day is April 22 and is a good time to host a celebration.
- Check to see if your community does anything for Earth Day. If they do, ask if they would like any volunteers to help plan the day or just be there to help where needed. If your community does not do anything, ask if they might be willing to help your group put on a celebration for the community. The best way to get something started would be to contact your local government, Chamber of Commerce, or local recycling center.
- The next thing to do is to figure out exactly what you want to do with your Earth Day Celebration. Many different things can be done at a celebration. You can have live music, recycled art project stations, the utility company could come and hand out information, you can plant trees, host a community wide clean up, have people come and talk about recycling, etc. Make sure that you make it fun for everyone involved.
- Advertise heavily, especially if you are doing a community wide celebration. Contact the radio station, newspaper and local TV station to let them know all the particulars that will be occurring during the celebration.
- Remember, every day is earth day. For more information: Earth Day Network and Environmental Protection Agency
