Community Events

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 2016 Celebrate Earth Day event will be held on April 23 on the Kenosha and Elkhorn Campuses. Please see below for last year's 2015 events.  Please check back in early 2016 for updated 2016 event information. 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.

Please see below for all the wonderful information provided during the previous Celebrate Earth Day events held April 25, 2015
