Our 2020 50th Anniversary of Earth Day celebration

Who We Are.

Submit a 300 to 400-word poem about optimism, beauty and appreciation for our shared planet Earth. 

Green Minds LFLB is offering a $100 prize to the winning student.

Submissions must be submitted by Monday, March 22 and will be judged by a local teacher, alderman and Librarian from our community. If your poem is selected, we’ll bring it to life by filming several community members, each reading sections of the poem, to create an Earth Day 2021 Video. Green Minds will share the video via our social media channels and credit the poet accordingly.

Together we can make a difference.

Make a single or monthly donation directly from your bank account, credit card, or Paypal.

Are you a student in Lake Forest or Lake Bluff?

It took a special effort this year to celebrate Earth Day — due to our current shelter-in-place guidelines. What happened instead was a virtual gathering of community, sharing thanks for what each of us appreciates about sustainability and our environment here in Lake Fores and Lake Bluff. 

Thanks to everyone who took part and contributed a snippet to this LFLB Green Circle. In the end, we had close to 70 submissions, and unfortunately, it was too many to include in the final video. Special thanks to LFHS students Tegan and Lauren for helping put this video together.

Calling all student poets!

We are a Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Sustainable Residents Initiative open to anyone living, working or studying in Lake Forest or Lake Bluff.

Our vision is to bring awareness to current environmental issues and to encourage educated, sustainable practices.
