Cumberland Community Forest Society celebrating Earth Day

Big announcement and community photo op among events planned

Cumberland celebrates the incredible beauty of the natural world every day of the year, but on Earth Day the village take things up a notch and residents come together to share an epic story.

Celebrate Earth Day with the Cumberland Community Forest Society on Wednesday, April 22.

Cumberland Parks and Recreation is hosting a special Earth Day after school program (its an early dismissal day) and local shops are offering up specials in celebration of the day. Both the Waverley Hotel and the Cumberland Brewing Company are serving up drink specials all day with proceeds to the Cumberland Forest.

Then at 5 p.m. join us for some exciting updates, a big announcement and a big community photo shoot in #6 Memorial Mine Park.

Donors, volunteers, supporters and friends are all welcome. Bring your kids. Bring your pets. Bring your bikes. Dress up. There will be Protect Cumberland Forest signs to share. Donors, volunteers, supporters and friends all welcome. Gather as big a group to show the size and force of the Cumberland Forest community. Tell your friends.

Still time to donate
