The annual Earth Day celebration at the Grand Canyon is coming up next month — and park officials are looking for businesses and organizations that want to participate.

Grand Canyon National Park will host the celebration from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 22, at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center Plaza. The event's activities will focuse on waste reduction and finding ways to reduce, reuse and recycle to protect the environment, the park said in a news release.

Organizers say they're looking for 10 to 12 organizations or businesses from outside the park to participate in the event. Applicants must fill out and submit an information sheet that will be reviewed by the park's Green Team, which then will make final selections and notify applicants.

The deadline to apply is Friday, March 17, so get on it if you'd like to be a part of the event. For more information about the Earth Day celebration, contact Green Team member Kim Park at 928-638-7329 or [email protected]
