Celebrate Earth Day

On the Saturday closest to Earth Day in April, Gateway celebrates our environment with displays, workshops, hands-on activities for people of all ages, and other environment-related activities. The event, started on Gateway's Kenosha Campus in 2008, was extended to the Elkhorn Campus in 2012. Hundreds of community members visit the Gateway campuses to learn and show their support for our environment. The 2015 Celebrate Earth Day event will be held from 10am-2pm on April 25th on the Kenosha Campus and 9am-2pm on the Elkhorn Campus.  Please see below for special events that begin before each public event in which we encourage you to participate.   A gracious thank you to our event sponsor, Snap-on Incorporated for their support. And, additionally in Elkhorn, to Elkhorn Parks and Recreation Department and the Elkhorn Chamber of Commerce.
