Local residents seeking to roll up their sleeves and make a difference for the environment this Earth Day (April 22) can find the ideal opportunity at a TogetherGreen volunteer site near you.
Dozens of Audubon sites nationwide will host TogetherGreen Volunteer Days in celebration of Earth Day providing thousands of Americans with opportunities to take local conservation action. Volunteer Days are a centerpiece of the TogetherGreen (www.togethergreen.org) conservation alliance between Audubon and Toyota.
This series of Volunteer Days – part of more than 200 taking place annually – will occur in select cities across the country throughout April. Activities include habitat and trail restoration, river and lake clean-ups, invasive species removal, nest-box building, wildlife and plant surveys, and more.
The following Audubon sites will host Volunteer Days this April (listed in alphabetical order by state):
TogetherGreen Volunteer Days are designed to connect people with opportunities to make a conservation difference in their local communities. Since the program’s inception, nearly 24,000 volunteers have participated in volunteer events nationwide, contributing more than 140,000 hours to conservation projects. By building stronger alliances with other national and local organizations, Audubon hopes to attract new and diverse volunteers to help address pressing environmental problems and opportunities.
In addition, hundreds of Toyota employees and their families from across the country have participated in TogetherGreen volunteer events. Many more are expected to join continuing efforts throughout this five-year initiative.
