Volunteer with USGBC Central Plains during this year's Green Apple Day of Service to help transform Wichita area schools into more healthy, safe and productive learning environments.

Since 2012, more than 750,000 volunteers in 73 countries have had an impact on the learning environments of 7 million students and teachers around the world.

Green Apple Day of Service 2016 will take place Saturday, Sept. 24.

Fresh Air Baby Camp

  • Time: 9 a.m. to noon
  • Location: 1229 W. 11th Street, Wichita, KS 67203
  • Contact information: Claire Willenberg, 316-990-4407,

In our continuing efforts to aid the Friends of the Historic Fresh Air Baby Camp with the restoration of the City's unique structure in Riverside Park, the Wichita Branch of USGBC Central Plains needs volunteers to help complete the rehabilitation process of this historic building. Windows will continue to be painted and installed, along with casings, and interior drywall and exterior plaster will need to be installed, patched and painted.

The Independent School

Attendees will be assisting with landscaping in front of the Media Resource Center to help attract Monarch butterflies and increase flora diversity on campus. We will also be painting the wall that hides our recycling and trash near the lower school, cleaning other campus flower beds and areas, and creating a safer more attractive environment for our community.
