El Cerrito Earth Day Celebration

Each year in April, the City celebrates Earth Day with a morning of volunteerism and work parties, followed by our Volunteer Appreciation Lunch.

To be assigned in advance, please register by April 1, 2020 either online or with a printed form. See details below:

  1. If you would like to host a work party or volunteer as a group or individual, please complete the online registration form so that we can assign you to a work site based on your interests prior to the event.
  2. If you prefer, a downloadable form will be available soon to print and drop-off at the OESD Recycling Center office at 7501 Schmidt Lane, open Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4.45 p.m. or Monday thru Friday from 8 a.m. to 5.45 p.m.

We are always open to feedback and suggestions.  If you have an idea for a work party, please email us.

Individuals, families and groups of volunteers helped to spruce up the landscaping around the library, removed broom from Hillside Natural Area near the Recycling Center, cared for Cerrito Creek, distributed information about El Cerrito's smoke-free policies to businesses, picked up litter, and helped to plant trees in Arlington Park. Following the work parties, volunteers where honored at an appreciation lunch at the Community Center. Click to view event photos from previous Earth Day work parties and luncheons in our Online Photo Gallery.
