EARTH DAY IS EVERYDAY

Missed Earth Day? Don't forget: EVERY day is Earth Day!  INAEP would love to talk to you about who we are or how you can be a friend to the environment.  Contact us at inaepinaep@gmail.com.

By the 20th anniversary of Earth Day in 1990, interest in environmental issues had spread across the globe. In Indiana, volunteers organized a 20th anniversary Earth Day celebration in downtown Indianapolis. A short time later, they formed a member-based, nonprofit organization to continue the event on the state level each year.  The Earth Day Indiana Festival is the largest one-day environmental event in the state, and is the first free, outdoor festival in Indianapolis each year.

 

The INAEP is proud to participate in Earth Day!   Each year, members of the INAEP volunteer their time to educate kids and adults alike about real world applications of the environmental sciences.  For the first time, the INAEP is presenting their exhibit at two separate events:  the Earth Day Indiana Festival at Military Park and the Zionsville Z’Greenfest at the Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library.

In order to make these booth exhibits successful, we need the help of our INAEP members.  Below are the details for both volunteer opportunities!
