Are you hosting a public event for Earth Day? If so, the Pikes Peak Earth Day organization wants to know! This year, they are planning to help get the word out by serving as a clearinghouse for all Earth Month (April) events in the Pikes Peak Region through a special Colorado Springs Independent insert to advertise your event(s) for free and their website.Event submissions must be received before Feb. 20 for placement in the printed insert. Pikes Peak Earth Day will also include Earth Month business specials/coupons and have sponsorship opportunities available to help fund an Earth Day Grant of up to $5,000 towards one project in the Pikes Peak region that meets the mission to, “celebrate our Earth by enhancing awareness and inspiring personal and community action toward a sustainable future”. The grant application deadline is Feb. 29.  Questions? Visit their website at or contact Allison Plute, Pikes Peak Earth Month Coordinator, 719-650-7474 or
