Chatham Organizations Celebrate Earth Day and Arbor Day All Week!

Celebrate planet earth! Join us in activities on Earth Day on April 22nd and Arbor Day on April 28th and the week in between. Spring has arrived and with its increasing light and warmth our thoughts turn to regrowth – in our spirit, gardens, communities, and on our planet.  People across the world celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd; many countries also celebrate Arbor Day making these celebrations truly worldwide.

In recognition of these global celebrations, three local Chatham organizations – St. Christopher’s Earth-Honoring Faith Committee, Friends of Trees, and the Chatham Conservation Foundation have joined together to provide our community with eight environmental/ conservation programs to celebrate Earth Day and Arbor Day week, from April 22nd to April 30th. The programs are free (except the Orpheum film),open to the public, and designed to educate and entertain townsfolk of all ages, from four to ninety four!  A central theme will be “to save the planet, we must save trees”.  We hope to build awareness of the importance of trees are to our own health, our community’s health and that of the planet.

Earth Day/Arbor Day week program includes the following events.  Events list is below and details and additional information can be found by going to
