Earth Day was put on the “radar” in Bellevue, when former Mayor, Gary Mixan, assigned Councilman Don Preister to start a “green team” and in April 22, 2010, proclaimed Earth Day to be “Green Bellevue Day.” In April 2011, Mayor Rita Sanders signed a “Spring in to Green Bellevue” proclamation and the newly 501(c)3 incorporated organization, Green Bellevue, held its second Earth Day ceremony. In 2012, Bellevue celebrated with its largest event to date - with approximately 400 people who came out to celebrate in grand proportions. We had our first 5k run/walk fundraiser event with 51 runners, and we had approximately 30 exhibitors. This year, Green Bellevue volunteers are working to attract the greater Sarpy County community to participate in a memorable Earth Day celebration for all ages and interests.
The centerpiece to the event is the Earth Day ceremony which includes a Mayoral Earth Day proclamation, student participation, as well as delivery of Environment Champion Awards. The event ends with a tree planting.April 22, 2010, proclaimation for Earth Day to be “Green Bellevue Day.”
