01. help the Staff
03. pick up a stream
04. Plant some trees
Check in with your school grounds and custodial staff—do they need any help keeping the campus clean and beautiful? Maybe your club can sort recycling or distribute mulch. Help the Earth and your school staff members who always help you!
02. clean the road
Your Key Club can adopt a stretch of a road near your school and organize monthly crews to go out and pick up the trash. The Michigan Department of Transportation offers a great Adopt-A-Highway program!
Rivers and streams provide 65 percent of our nation’s drinking water, but they are often riddled with trash. Enlist your club in a gentle cleanup for Earth Day to not only enhance the beauty of their environment but also positively impact their own water supply.
According to arborday.org, where you can go to learn how to take action, “Volunteers play an important role in tree planting and tree care projects in communities across the United States. You can get involved, too! Whether you are organizing a tree planting project or looking to volunteer at a tree planting or pruning event, you can take pride in helping to transform our urban landscapes.”
