Earth Day 2019

April 25, 2019

Earth Day is a yearly event celebrated on April 22. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day now includes events in more than 193 countries, which are coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection.

This year, the Entercom Greensboro stations teamed with the Piedmont Environmental Center (PEC) in High Point for our 1Day1Thing initiative. The Piedmont Environmental Center provides programs and a place to learn, conserve and enjoy the natural world through hands-on experiences emphasizing the interrelated and fragile nature of life. Eleven miles of foot trails and the Bicentennial Greenway pass through 376 acres of beautiful hardwood and pine forests and lakeside habitats.

The Entercom Greensboro Green Team and staff from all six radio stations did a team building project where they cleaned up and repainted the North Carolina Mapscape that is a 70’ by 30’ walk-on topographic relief map. This allowed staff to learn more about Earth Day and do something meaningful locally and for the Earth.
