April is Earth Month! Volunteer. Learn. Celebrate.
Earth Month takes place in April every year. It is a time to celebrate California’s natural beauty, and also raise awareness around the issues impacting the environment. California is the most biodiverse state in the U.S. and it requires a collective effort to look after the State’s diverse species and ecosystems. It is also extremely important to reduce human impact on the environment to protect the health of families and communities now and for future generations. During the month of April, you are invited to participate in the events listed below to help clean-up and beautify your community:
