Our vision for celebrating Earth Day is to offer a memorable, unprecedented and fun venue for our community to celebrate, raise awareness of the environmental needs in our community, and provide education on Earth friendly practices and why we must do them. The entire county and metro area is invited to attend!


Sarpy County's Earth Day celebration is an excellent way to showcase your company or organization's green practices!

We are currently seeking individuals to help lead the following volunteer efforts:
  • VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR - Help recruit and coordinate volunteers for set up and day of tasks. Organize check-in, orientation, lunch vouchers, etc.
  • SIGNAGE & BANNERS - Help spread the word by updating and placing signs and banners around town and collecting materials afterwards for future use.
  • PROCLAMATIONS COORDINATOR - We have all the information necessary! Work with volunteers with past experience to contact the cities of Bellevue, Gretna, La Vista, Papillion and Springfield to have each mayor sign an Earth Day Proclamation. Coordinate volunteers to attend the city council meetings and read the proclamations to the public.

If you are interested in these or other volunteer opportunities, please contact Brittany Dabestani at brittanyd@greenbellvue.org.
