Earth Day Opportunities

Let's help make our home an everlasting home for generations.

Join others from Kenosha congregations to recognize Earth Day 2022!

The March Forth to Earth Day effort is statewide in 20 cities every Friday for an hour at 12 or 5pm. Kenosha has been having rallies in Civic Center Park at 12 for the last 4 weeks and will keep doing so until April 22nd. The original emphasis was educating the public about:

The Bad River watershed and the Lake Superior shoreline are some of the most beautiful and ecologically important places on the planet. More importantly, it is the home of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. Their families and way of life are at risk from the pollution the Enbridge Line 5 pipeline will bring with it. (taken from a Conservation Voters notice)

Each city can do their own thing. Kenosha is widening out to plastic pollution and climate change. We are having a different emphasis each Friday.

April 1st - What is a Climate Emergency? What role does your bank play in global warming?

April 2nd - Carthage/Parkside Sustainability Summit, free, but pre-registration required.

April 8th - Comments from Kenosha elected officials

April 9th - Table at the Kenosha Public Museum's Eco Family Day 11-3pm

April 15th - Showing film - "Kiss the Ground" for teens and adults at 10:30am at Immanuel UMC 5410 Sheridan Road, followed by discussion. Then rally at park.

April 22nd - Recycle/Repurpose Day Waste Director Keir Powell will instruct us on recycling do's and don't's. Display of up-cycled items. How much trash and recycles can people collect between now and then and bring to the park?

April 23rd - Gateway Tech Eco Day table. EV Car Show at Somers Festival Food
