Earth Day 2016 was a great success. Thanks to all the sponsors, site managers, and volunteers

Building on the success of the first Earth Day in 2007, Green Columbus has engaged the central Ohio community to contribute more that 95,000 hours of green citizen service in the last ten years. 

The number of volunteers reach over 5,000 this year for the first time. A big thanks to everyone who participated.


The number of ours is also growing at a steady speed. The volunteers clocked in over 17,000 this year alone.

Hours Donated


For the last three years Columbusites more than doubled the number of trees planted each year!
