How Can I Participate?

Create works of art with chalk expressing an Earth Day theme! If you choose to draw on city trails, please be mindful of walkers and bikers and give them the right-of-way or use only one side of the trail so that people can go around you. You can use your own chalk or pick up a set at one of the designated locations (see below). Take a picture of the finished product and submit the picture by April 17, 2021 to
