Community Environmental Council Seeks Volunteers for Earth Day Festival

The success of the Community Environmental Council’s Earth Day Festival relies on the energy and hands-on support from hundreds of dedicated volunteers who help make the event happen.

Volunteers do everything from assisting with vendor check-in, greeting festival guests and conducting crowd counts, working in the Green Car Show area, and helping with the festival’s children's activities. They also assist with stage management, parking, social media and supporting the "Zero-Waste Team" to ensure that the Earth Day Festival produces as little waste as possible.

The CEC needs volunteers before and during the festival! Each volunteer shift is a three-hour commitment.

Event organizers are reaching out to high school students seeking community service hours, corporate volunteer teams and individuals looking to support a good cause.

Volunteers are needed for pre-festival setup from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 23, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, April 24 and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, April 25, as well as on festival days, from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, April 26 and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday, April 27.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
