Volunteer at the 2015 New Orleans Earth Day Festival!

The New Orleans Earth Day Festival depends on volunteers to succeed. Sign up here! Most shifts are four hours long, and you’ll get all day access to our Volunteer Lounge, a shaded lounge where you can quench your thirst and snack on goodies. With a killer lineup including Theresa Andersson, EarPhunk, Mia Borders, Stooges Brass Band, and Africa Brass, LA’s first solar derby, and arts market, volunteering at the 2015 New Orleans Earth Day Festival will be both fun and fulfilling.

Save the Date!

Mark your calendars for April 18th! In just a few weeks we will be commemorating the 5th anniversary of the 2010 BP Disaster by celebrating our planet, going solar, and a commitment to environmental health & justice.
