ALL HAIL our Sentinels who rocked Earth Month with 80 (!!!) events.
During April 2010, Water Sentinels sponsored, cosponsored or participated in 80 events in 15 states. Deliberately focusing on a variety of hands-on interactive events and youth, we engaged 16,848 participants. 10,378 of those participants were youth, including ~3,000 underserved youth.
18 trash cleanup events and one household hazardous waste (HHW) collection event recovered 46.4 tons of trash, 43.8 tons of HHW, and 2.8 tons of recyclables.
We tabled at four large Earth Month events attended by nearly 400,000. Michigan Sentinel Lynn Henning, winner of the 2010 Goldman Prize for North America, spoke at the Earth Day Rally at DC’s National Mall, to an estimated crowd of 200,000.
