Walk for the Earth

We are officially signed up for next weekend’s “Walk for the Earth” fundraiser event. It is happening right before EarthFest 2012 at the Cleveland Metropark Zoo and it’s a 6-mile route starting at the Rainforest in the zoo, going through Brookside Reservation and finishing at EarthFest at the zoo. Luckily, my little family is joining me on the walk next Sunday morning, which makes it that much better.

All money raised benefits Earth Day Coalition’s Student Leadership environmental education program, a year-round program that unites and supports students in urban and suburban Cleveland. Some recent projects include building worm bins and rain barrels for community gardens, composting projects, constructing rain gardens, energy efficiency audits and retrofits and a bike-palooza.

Anything that raises money to benefit the city of Cleveland and her surrounding areas, I am all for it, especially making CLE a greener, more energy-efficient place. Combine that with a walking opportunity outside, I am happy.

Online registration for  “Walk for the Earth” is open until Wednesday, April 18. Come join us and register here!

Live green, love green,
