Earth Month

Forget about Earth Day–We’re celebrating the whole month of April as Earth Month here at GPHC!

Each year on April 22nd, people all over the world celebrate Earth Day, but this year, GPHC wants to encourage our neighbors to use the entire month of April to learn more about climate change and increase the sustainability in our community! Join us for the neighborhood events below, help us spread the word about our Bee Careful Campaign, and pledge to help clean up your block or a local thoroughfare!
