This Earth Day, April 22, 2022, is more than a celebration. It is the opportunity for all of us to TAKE ACTION not just because we care about the natural world but also because we all live on it. All of us need a healthy Earth to support our jobs, livelihoods, health & survival, and happiness. A healthy planet is not an option — it is a necessity.    As individuals, we have the simple yet effective power to make our voices heard through our choices, civic actions, and personal interactions. What we do and how we do it has a huge ripple effect on our ecosystems and corporate and government action pace.    The Earth Day 2022 Theme is Invest In Our Planet. What Will You Do? Change starts with action, and you can begin accepting the invitation to join us for a spring cleaning on our watersheds! Let's keep trash and plastic out of our water by cleaning up Pimmit Run Stream! It is a symbol of the health of our community, and now is the time for the unstoppable courage to preserve and protect our health, our families, our livelihoods… together, we must Invest In Our Planet.

Date and time: Friday April 22, 2022, at 3:30 p.m.

  • Establish a connection between citizens and the waterway that runs through our community
