Earth Month Walk + Roll

Community Event
Celebrate Earth Month this April by walking and rolling to school!

Get creative to celebrate Earth Month this April

In the spirit of reducing waste during Earth Month this April, Oregon Safe Routes to School will not provide physical material incentives; instead, we're encouraged to get creative about how we celebrate walking and rolling for the earth—whether it’s all month or just on Earth Day (Monday, April 22).

Below are a few resources and ideas about how to celebrate Earth Month:

  • Use this Earth Month toolkit to help spread the word and plan activities. 
  • Plant seeds at your school or around your community.
  • Write a thank you card to the Earth.
  • Create a collaborative mural at your school about walking and rolling to school.
  • Have students make posters about why they love the Earth.
