We show love for Heavenly Father and for each other when we care for His lands, air, waters, and wildlife. We are accountable for how we treat God's creations.

LDS Earth Stewardship helps us join with fellow members of the Church and others of faith to fulfill our responsibility to care for the environment. You can help us promote the gospel message of caring for the environment with those who do not fully realize its importance. 

Join Us

Join Us

LDS Earth Stewardship membership, and participation in LDSES groups and programs, are completely free. By becoming a member, you are joining a growing consensus of compassionate benefactors of the Creation.

You will be subscribed to our monthly e-newsletter and will be kept informed about: our work, programs we are developing, events we are hosting, projects needing volunteers, and messages on important church revelations. If you opt out of these communications you may always check up on us on our website or through our social media accounts: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.

We invite you to help us expand our efforts. We have donation based membership levels beyond the complimentary membership and we hope you will choose to support us. 

We are hard at work continuing our programs and engaging new people. We’ve created local groups, monthly challenges, a book club, and an incredible creation-centered gospel Resource Library accessible through our website.

With your support we can expand our impactful programs, host additional events, welcome more amazing speakers, expand volunteer and staff resources, and share our message widely. Together, we can make a difference - in local communities and around the world.
