10th Anniversary Earth Week Celebration
The Green Generation: Restoring The Circle
Earth Day Poster Contest Winner- Age Catergory 18+ Shannon Hooper
This year’s Earth Week Celebration marks a special milestone for the FPST Environmental Department. This is the 10th Anniversary of Earth Day here at the tribe. The first Earth Day we held was in 2000. Since then, we’ve added more activities and events. We now dedicate an entire week to celebrating Earth Day. We will begin on April 19th to start scheduled pickups of large items and will host events through the week, culminating in the Earth Day Celebration on April 24th at Fox Peak Station.
The Fallon Paiute-Shoshone Tribe Environmental Department implements programs and projects to protect and work toward improving our environment and the health of everyone who lives and works here. For us, Earth Day really is every day.
This year also marks the 40th Anniversary of the international Earth Day event. Earth Day is observed on April 22nd internationally. By celebrating Earth Week with us you will be joining the more than one billion people in 190 countries that are taking action for Earth Day. Download the Earth Week Celebration Poster here!
