Earth Day of DU-ing

Earth Day 2019 is fast approaching! We think Earth Day is a great time to rally people to do something impactful for their community. The University of Denver Center for Sustainability, Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning, and the Metro Denver Nature Alliance have paired up to create an awesome opportunity to do just this - and we want your help! Sign up below to volunteer with any of our amazing community partners to make a real difference in our city this Earth Day!!

Join us for a kick-off breakfast where you will receive your t-shirt, meet up with you project Team Captain, and get stoked for the day - 9AM on Carnegie Green. After a day of hard work, join us for a casual come-and-go happy hour at Kaos Pizzaria from 3-6PM.

Date: 04/19/2019 (Fri.)

Time: 10:00am - 2:00pm MDT
