Bring your family and friends and join us for Earth Day. We have two meaningful activities that will give you the opportunity to serve and learn.

Our Saturday morning service project is a land clean-up near Saratoga Springs, Utah. There is a lot of trash and debris that has been left behind in a beautiful area that looks out over Utah Lake. After spending a few hours cleaning up, we will take a break and have an archeologist teach us about the Native American petroglyphs in the area. This project will be good for your soul.

On Monday evening, bring your family to hear Matthew C. Godfrey, the general editor and managing historian for the Joseph Smith Papers. He is an expert on environmental studies within the Church, and his topic, "Earth Will Appear as the Garden of Eden: Joseph Smith, the City of Zion, and the Natural World," will be applicable to us as members of the Church and earth stewards today. This passage (taken from the description of his essay collection) provides a good description of his topic:

"Since Joseph Smith’s revelations, Mormons have interacted with nature in significant ways—whether perceiving it as a place to find God, uncorrupted spaces in which to build communities to usher in the Second Coming, wildness needing domestication and control, or a world brimming with natural resources to ensure economic well-being."

Come Serve & Learn with LDS Earth Stewardship!
