At USGBC Wisconsin, we like to think that every day is Earth Day, but we have some extra special opportunities planned in April to allow all of our volunteers and members to celebrate with us. Whether you prefer volunteering to clean and care for Wisconsin's parks and riverfront, studying for your LEED Green Associate exam or supporting our new Green Veterans initiative, we have options for you. We are also partnering with other Wisconsin organizations on these events.

Come show your appreciation for the environment and dedication to sustainability, and celebrate Earth Day with us!
