Who we Are
In 2019, a group of community members volunteered to plan an Earth Day festival, “Community Solutions for a Healthy Planet”. 500 people attended the festival at the Bozeman Public Library, enjoying talks, exhibits, and food as well as music, dance, art, and theater!
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we are planning a larger event. Gallatin Valley will join the Earth Day festivities around the world that will educate and mobilize more than one billion people.
Our Fiscal Sponsor:
Great Gallatin United Way (GGUW) serves as the fiscal sponsor for the Earth Day Festival 2020 Committee. All donations made to GGUW on behalf of the Earth Day Festival will be designated solely for Earth Day Festival events and programs.
Many thanks to our wonderful volunteers
Bozeman High School Solar Schools Club
Gallatin Valley Earth Day Festival is proud to support the Bozeman High School's "Solar Schools Club".
The Solar Schools Club's students are raising funds to place solar panels on Bozeman's two high schools. This would
save taxpayer money on electricity bills
create jobs for solar installers
benefit students’ education
benefit Montana’s environment
All fundraising proceeds from Gallatin Valley Earth Day Festival will be donated to the club. More Information
