Volunteer Based Activities

Earth Day

Spearheaded by the Bennington Campus of the Community College of Vermont (CCV), with help from CCV teacher Emory Forest, drummer Otha Day, BCCD, and the VT Department of Environmental Conservation, Earth Day 2007 was Bennington's biggest ever. Group drumming, singing, a Native American pipe ceremony and shared waters activity, and other activities entertained and taught a large crowd of young and old. Folks took away tote bags and postcards with a watershed theme (the logo was designed in a CCV graphics design class competition) and helped themselves to materials provided by local and agency environmental organizations.
