Earth Month

Celebrate Earth Month in Issaquah!  

Join the City of Issaquah as we celebrate the 51st Anniversary of Earth Day! 

Earth Day is about environmental protection and community. The theme of this year’s Earth Day is: “When life around the globe returns to normal, our world cannot return to business-as-usual.”

There is lots of work to be done, both individually and as a community, to improve the way we live and work in order to curb global warming and ecosystem degradation. 

We hope you can join the City and our partners in celebrating Earth Month together.
