The Tenino Earth Day celebration with be held on April 20, 2024 in the Tenino City Park. During the event participants will be asked to aid volunteers from the Friends of Tenino Parks in various "park cleanup" activities to be determined prior to the event. We are trying for minimal to zero waste, so bring your own water bottle to stay hydrated and get a free sticker. 

New this year, thanks to the Lion's Club and local event sponsors a total of $1,500 is available in the prize pool, and every participating school in the Tenino School District will receive a percentage of the prize money based on attendance. Yes, everyone wins! The event can also be used to complete Community Service Hours.

*A parent or guardian must be present on the day of the event to sign in and sign the event participation waiver. Parental participation is strongly encouraged and children under 10 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Event staff will not be available to wait for child pickup after the end of the event.
