Flagstaff Bike to Work Week

Bike to Work Week demonstrates the tremendous potential Flagstaff's population has to make a difference by commuting by bicycle. Join us in May as we can make that difference count more by bike commuting more often. Read on about Bike to Work Week.

Flagstaff 15 Minute Makeover

Got 15 minutes to keep Flagstaff beautiful? It's time for the 10th annual 15-minute makeover! Join community members at 10:15 am on October 15th, 2019 in picking up litter where you work, live or play. The Flagstaff Community Stewards program will supply trash bags, recycle bags, and disposable gloves if you need them.

Stop by City Hall the 15th between 9 and 10:30 am to pick up supplies, have a donut and coffee and learn about waste reduction, recycling, hazardous waste disposal, and other ways you can help keep Flagstaff flawless!

Sign up to participate on our Facebook page or by sending an email. After the event, post a photo of your group with your trash bags on our facebook page with #Flag15 to be entered into a drawing for gift certificates to local restaurants!

Sustainable Home & Garden Tour

The Sustainability Program collaborates with the Coconino County Sustainable Building Program to organize the Sustainable Home and Garden Tour, a free educational event which happens each fall. The tour is self guided and starts at Willow Bend Environmental Education Center. There, you will receive a tour packet with all addresses, maps and information on each location. Most tour locations implement water conservation, solar power, rainwater collection, xeriscaping, composting, passive solar design, and others. Locations will have either the homeowner/builder and/or an expert to educate and answer your questions
