Each year, EarthWorks recognizes businesss, clubs, organizations and/or individuals that deserves special recognition for their work on behalf of a clean, healthy environment. All too often, these organizations' and individuals' efforts go unrecognized and unacknowledged. Attend the V.I.P. Reception and help us acknowledge these extraordinary efforts.

EarthFair Volunteer Awards
San Diego EarthWorks’ annual EarthFair in Balboa Park is the largest free environmental fair and Earth Day celebration in the world. Significantly, the event is produced by around 400 volunteers.
This large group of volunteers, many of whom are volunteering for the first time, is managed by a cadre of about 30 team leaders. Many of these team leaders come back year after year to produce this landmark event.
We take this opportunity to honor the team leaders who have volunteered for 5, 10, 15 and 20 years.
