As the vibrant hues of spring paint our landscapes with blossoms and new growth, it’s time once again to rally behind the Earth Day Oregon campaign. April offers us a poignant moment to pause and appreciate the beauty of our planet, while also recognizing the urgent need for environmental stewardship.

Since its inception in 2019, Earth Day Oregon has burgeoned into a powerful movement, uniting individuals, businesses, and nonprofits statewide in advocating for our environment. This year, we’re proud to stand alongside esteemed partners such as Atmos Financial, Beneficial State Bank, B-Line Urban Delivery, and Thimbleberry Collaborative Farm, as we collectively strive to safeguard the natural treasures of the Pacific Northwest.

Together, we extend a warm invitation to our broader community to join us in supporting local nonprofits, where the spirit of Earth Day thrives every day.

Here are four impactful ways you can make a difference this month:

1. Volunteer with Ecotrust

Join us for a volunteer day on Earth Day, April 22, at Thimbleberry Collaborative Farm! Your hands-on participation will contribute directly to conservation efforts and community building, fostering a deeper connection to the land and its offerings.
