Redlands residents are set to embark on a day of collective action aimed at addressing climate change and fortifying the community against its impacts.

In celebration of Earth Day 2024, hundreds of volunteers spanning every corner of the town are poised to participate in a series of initiatives targeting climate mitigation and adaptation.

From tree planting drives to community clean-up efforts, projects will take place April 20 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The various projects aim to address Local Climate Impacts and ANCA's vision of building a climate-resilient community. Some projects will give participants hands-on experience while others will be more educational or informational, according to organizers.

From 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., participants will gather at the Redlands Bowl to report on the day's accomplishments and celebrate with music, information tables, and speakers.

Last year, 34 organizations and individuals volunteered as project hosts, guiding more than 500 individuals through Earth Day projects. 

The city-wide event is sponsored by Accelerate Neighborhood Climate Action (ANCA), Common Vision Coalition of Redlands, City of Redlands, Inland Empire Resource Conservation District, Redlands Facilities and Community Services, California Climate Action Corps, San Bernardino County Master Gardeners, University of Redlands Treestock, California Native Plant Society, Riverside-San Bernardino, Citizens' Climate Lobby Redlands, and University of Redlands.
