Plant a tree in your yard to celebrate Earth Day. Pick up your very own free 1-2 gallon tree at the Herring Run Nursery, where you can also purchase native plants.

Faith-based communities are invited to join us for a free forum to learn how to make a difference towards decreasing stormwater runoff.

Make a Positive Change All Year Long

There are lots of easy and fun ways to celebrate Earth Day that can make a difference all year long. Everything you do to help the planet counts, whether you walk to school or help to clean up litter from your neighborhood park! Here are five more ways to commemorate Earth Day and become an environmental steward for months to come.

Recycle

Learn what you can and can’t recycle, and start separating out those cans and bottles!

Use Reusable Water Bottles

Bottled water consumes huge amounts of fossil fuels to produce and transport, and most of those recyclable water bottles end up in landfills. Get yourself a refillable and permanent water bottle to carry with you.

Carpool

Taking cars off the road is one of the best ways to combat climate change. Find people in your area with whom to share morning and afternoon commutes.

Buy Local Food

Locally grown food is easier on the environment. You’re also supporting local farmers, and they’ll thank you for it!

Go Paperless

Bills come in many forms. Many bill-paying services offer an option to pay online.
