Are you creative? Artistic? Inspired by nature?

Do you love drawing, painting, sculpting, writing, or expressing yourself through art in any way? Do you love the Eastern Sierra, and have great appreciation for the Earth?

We are calling on you to celebrate Earth Day with Eastern Sierra Land Trust and our eastside community for the month of April by creating art centered around the Earth! 

Earth Day is an annual, globally recognized day dedicated to the awareness of environmental efforts, concerns, and collective activism for issues such as climate change, global warming, and conservation needs. We want to encourage everyone to celebrate this day through not only our actions, but our creative expression as well, knowing that art can contribute to the growing respect, appreciation, and essential change for our natural environment on a local to global scale.

So inspire your community with your art this April! Let your art describe your relationship to the Eastern Sierra while capturing, describing, or answering what this question means to you:

How does Earth take care of us, and how can we take care of Earth in return?
