Earth Day Houston 2018

The CEC is excited to be taking over Earth Day Houston, a task that it hasn’t managed since 2004. An alliance of almost 150 organizations that do environmental work in the Houston/Gulf Coast region, CEC hosted Houston’s first Earth Day in 1970–so we have a long history of bringing the environmental community together to celebrate.

To become a part of this exciting event, contact Rachel Powers, Executive Director, at 713-524-4232 or rachel@cechouston.org.

Dozens of Earth Day festivals will be held throughout the Houston area in 2018. We will, as always, have a list of Earth Month events on our calendar. Remember to save the date for CEC Environmental Trivia Contest at St Arnold’s, Sunday, May 13, 2018!

And remember: Every Day Is Earth Day!
