Preparation for Earth Day starts weeks in advance of the celebration itself.

We create costumes, headdresses, banners, and puppets large and small.

Community members of all ages, children, teens, and adults, can participate in our Earth Day workshops.

This is your opportunity to make your own animal creation to carry in the Earth Day Parade.

We want our community members to show off the incredible banner designs and intricately decorated headdresses.

At our workshops, participants build Earth Floats to release during the River Ceremony at the start of Earth Day.

Build Earth Floats using natural materials, such as milk weed pods, birch bark, oak branches, and cattails.

The Earth Float engineers attach good wishes for the Earth and for the rivers and release their floats during the River Ceremony.

Since the Floats are made from natural materials, the floats will return to Nature where they came from.

All Earth Day Workshop activities will be lead by our Earth Day instructors, who have organized Earth Day for years.

We are so happy to bring such wonderful instructors into classrooms with our nature-loving community.

Instructor: Morningstar Medaye and others
