Earth Day turns 50! Green Columbus has been organizing Earth Day volunteer events and celebrations for over a decade. Earth Day is a great way to give back, and there are dozens of Earth Day volunteer opportunities during Earth Day Columbus 2020 Volunteer Service Week! The service week will be happening across central Ohio April 17-24 with thousands of volunteers working together to make our communities greener and cleaner. Plant trees, pick up litter, work in public gardens and parks, or pick one of many other opportunities to do your part!
