The annual event invites area groups in all of Mansfield/Richland County to conduct a project during the months of April through August to commemorate Earth Day, Arbor Day, and Soil and Water Stewardship Week and serve as a reminder that these days should not be celebrated on just one day, but throughout the year.

Citizens are encouraged to join this celebration by participating in a litter clean up, tree planting, and/or beautification project, recycling drive, community garden, rain barrel/rain garden, planting of native plants, pollinators, prairies and/or wildflower garden project of your choice at a location of your choice. Organize your friends, neighbors, and co-workers and register your participation by calling the Earth Stewardship Steering committee at (419) 522-3211.
