Earth Day Spruce Up

Earth Day Spruce Up


Volunteer with Give Back Cincinnati on Earth Day at Imago Earth Center in Price Hill for our second Hands On event for the year!  Our volunteer project will consist of working on the trails throughout Imago’s grounds, which will include evening out and creating trails, along with laying limestone and mulch on the trail paths that we are working on.  Additionally, we will be doing weeding and planting in the gardens on the grounds.  Since it’s Earth Day, we will do a clean up of Imago’s grounds after we’re finished with the project (time permitting).

In classic Give Back Cincinnati fashion, we will have an after party happy hour at Incline Public House to celebrate the success of our Earth Day volunteer project and to help volunteers meet some new friends!

    I would like to make this a potential YP volunteer event for Fifth Third but we do have to submit well in advance. Do we have any more details on where this will take place and number of volunteers needed etc? Also a contact person?

    thanks!
