Want To Make A Difference? Here's Your Chance - Become An EDTx17 Volunteer

Screen Shot 2017-04-06 at 11.44.45 AMWant to make a difference? Here’s your chance.

Earth Day Texas is not just the world’s largest Earth Day event. It’s an environmental movement – unobstructed by politics and fueled by your community. More than 100,000 passed through Dallas’ Fair Park last year, for the free event.

In order to bring the best experience to all those who attend, we need your help – a team of volunteers who will promote a positive impact on the environment through education.

Our volunteers are involved in activities that teach children how to make a difference through science and encourage adults to explore the many exhibits to learn what innovations are available today and ideas for a sustainable future.

Whatever your interest, skill, or degree of interactions desired, there is a special niche at Earth Day Texas for you.

And you get a free t-shirt and water bottle as a thank you for your service!

Sign up today to be a volunteer at Earth Day Texas 2017 – April 21-23.
