April is one of our favorite months, and this year we are excited to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day!
Are you interested in helping to plan Earth Day and Month events?
What usually happens during Earth Month?
We are working with community partners to plan a whole month of great activities, and we would love your help!
There are two upcoming planning meetings at the Missoula Public Library:
February 15th, 10:30am - 12pm
February 27th, 3:45 - 5pm
If you cannot make either meeting but are interested in helping out at the future, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We had such a great time at MUDs Earth Day Celebration last year. Check out the photos and get inspired!
