Taking action in Iowa this Earth Day

posted on Thursday, April 4, 2024

Two kids framed by sign saying 'Think Green'Happy Earth Month, IEC friends! While Earth Day officially takes place on Monday, April 22, many organizations, communities, and groups recognize and celebrate all things Earth and the environment throughout the month. 

Iowans have many ways to get involved and give back, whether you want to pick up trash, improve native landscapes, participate in citizen science, get in a workout, or even just do a little shopping!

Once again this year, IEC has gathered a number of resources and ideas that you can do here in Iowa. You can also visit the EPA's Earth Day page for ideas and information.
