Call for Volunteers for New Bern’s 2019 Earth Day Event

New Bern Earth Day 2019Did you know that the 50th Earth Day Celebration is coming in 2020?

The perfect time to start planning is this year’s Earth Day. We will be gathering on Saturday, April 20th from 1 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the corner of Craven and S. Front Streets in the vacant lot next to Mitchell Hardware.

Our goal is to bring people together to meet like-minded citizens while exploring opportunities that we can all take to protect our local natural resources, environment, wildlife, waterways and ultimately counter climate change.

We’ll have live music, preservation, environmental, and conservation exhibits, and eco-conscious children’s activities. We also need volunteers to help us on the day of to set up and clean up, directing attendees, participating in children’s activities, and helping exhibitors.

We are in the process of confirming educators, vendors, and sponsors. To be a educator, volunteer or sponsor, please send an email or text/call to New Bern Now 252-295-6853.
