UPDATE: Wow, we’ve never had to do this before, but the response to this year’s Earth Day Service Fest has been so incredible, we’ve had to close registration and will not be able to take walk-ins. As much as we’d love to celebrate Earth Day with as many of you as possible, we also want to make sure we keep the amount of volunteers at a level that allows everyone to participate in meaningful and productive projects. We look forward to seeing those of you who have already signed up, and if you didn’t get a chance, may we suggest checking out our friends at Milwaukee Riverkeeper’s Spring Cleanup on Earth Day? There’s bound to be a site near you in need of awesome volunteers!
Because the Earth gives to us 365 days a year!
Join Riveredge and celebrate Earth Day right by working hand in hand with Riveredge staff on fun, informative service projects that give back to both the planet and our community!
From preparing and planting cool garden beds in our children’s organic garden to conducing grounds clean-up and invasive species removal to trail maintenance, this fest will provide you an opportunity to get your hands dirty while keeping our sanctuary green. There’s awesome opportunities for groups, families, and individuals of all ages to get involved and make a difference.
The day is free and as a special thank you, all volunteers will receive a free lunch at noon and a picnic style festival starting at 11:30am. Everyone is invited to make a nesting bag for birds, experience a composting demonstration, and play in the great outdoors. It’s bound to be a blast and you’ll walk away feeling like an all star with all the good you helped to put into the world!
Let us know if you have any questions and we can’t wait to celebrate Earth Day with you!
