Candy-like flowers blooming, crisp and sweet fruits flourishing, blue birds chirping, brisk air blowing, sunlight rejuvenating nature’s beautiful life cycle… yes, it must be the beginning of Spring.
This winter’s showers have revitalized Mother Earth, enhancing each aspect of nature down to the smallest blade of grass. As guardians of this re-energized and joyful environment, the Santa Barbara’s Community Environmental Council (CEC) bands together a community of over 300 individuals to raise awareness towards making our neighborhoods a greener and healthier place to live.
For over 40 years, the CEC has hosted the Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival, providing individuals of all stripes to come together, educate the public about dirty fossil fuels, inspire solutions, and take action at the grass roots level— no pun intended.
Friday, April 21 through Sunday, April 23, come to Alameda Park and participate in educating and inspiring the community by keeping the legacy alive and becoming a volunteer!
Whether you are a student or a business, there is a position perfectly fit for you. Not only can you help check in vendors, take photographs and greet guests, conduct crowd counts, work in the Green Car Show, help with children’s activities, assist the Zero-Waste Team, or manage the stage and social media, but you can also receive credit for hours and you may even get a tan!
Volunteers are required to work a 3-hour shift on either the Pre-Festival Setup day (Friday, April 21, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.), Saturday (April 22, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.), or Sunday (April 23, 9 a.m.- 9 p.m.).
The CEC understands that working in the sun can be energy draining, but don’t worry! If you get hungry during any of your shifts, you are able to enjoy free, delicious food. Plus, you will also receive a free t-shirt at the orientation meeting on Thursday, April 20 at 5:30 p.m. But wait, did someone say free food?
