WASHINGTON – President Obama’s inaugural call to service is being answered by the Earth Day Network.

From April 17 to 19, service projects will benefit 10 cities, including New York, Atlanta, Chicago and San Francisco. Volunteers are asked to make tangible improvements in parks, schools and on beaches to help tackle climate change.

Earth Day’s flagship event will again be on the National Mall in Washington

Following the service projects, “thank-you” concerts in every city on April 19 will feature musical performers. Names of performers are not yet being released to the public.
