This time of year, we usually begin announcing celebration plans for Charlottesville-UVA Earth Week, which takes place in mid-April. It’s been an extraordinarily tough year, but there is still so much to celebrate about our shared planet. That’s why for 2021, we look forward to celebrating all April long with an expanded “Earth Day Every Day” Community Celebration! We invite individuals and groups to participate in any/all of the following ways. Let’s show our friends, families, co-workers, classmates, and neighbors how much our community cares about this beautiful Earth that we all share.
