Past Earth Day Events

Every year, EMO and the Owens Valley Paiute-Shoshone Cultural Center partner with other tribal departments, and neighboring tribes and organizations to host a (mostly) outdoor event and gathering, following a community trash clean-up event. Participants in the clean-up target areas on the reservation in groups, families, or solo, contributing to a waste stream sorting effort with EMO staff, and receive breakfast for their efforts. The event also includes kids activities such as crafts and games, FirstBloom activities, live music, demos and expos, crafts, food, informational booths, and a raffle.

Past participants have included: Tribal Council and Miss Bishop Paiute, BPT Public Works, KBPT Eagle Radio, Fort Independence Environmental Office, Toiyabe Indian Health Project, Inyo County, Wildcare Eastern Sierra, High Point Solar, Sierra Solar, SCE, GRID Alternatives, and the Office of Indian Energy.
