About the Greater Cincinnati Earth Coalition
The Greater Cincinnati Earth Coalition produces an annual Earth Day celebration. It's a community event for not-for-profit organizations, businesses, government agencies, and individuals from the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Tri-state region who work cooperatively and actively to promote the beauty and environmental quality of the Tri-State area.
We are looking for volunteers to help with the event as well as serve on our board.
