Volunteer Quick Facts

Earth Day Columbus Service Sites are organized independently. For this reason, each site will be different depending on the host and the nature of the work. It's best to consider the ability level of all the members of your group and match that with the intensity of the activity. Some services (such as tree planting) can be more physically demanding than others (such as litter pickup). We recommend reading the details of each service site fully before choosing one that's right for you and/or your group.

Everyone taking part in a service site should bring water, sun screen, and any necessary personal items such as medication, inhalers, etc. Some sites will offer some supplies such as gloves and tools on site, but we recommend you read each site's details fully so you know what to bring.

Be sure to take great pictures and tag us (Facebook: @greencolumbus, Twitter: @Green_Columbus)! The hashtag is #EarthDayCbus.


" Great experience and people. Grateful for the opportunity to plant trees, remove invasive species, and connect with other Columbus residents who want to make our community more sustainable!"
