Planning an Endangered Species Day Event!
HOW TO PLAN AN EVENT
STep 1: Set a date, time and place.
Once you have an event idea, set a date, time, and place. While it is great if your event can be on Endangered Species Day — Friday, May 19th, 2023 — you can also schedule it for earlier in the week, on the weekend, or another time in May.
STEp 2: Register your event.
Register your event using this link so that it is added to the Endangered Species Day event map. This will allow more people to find and attend your event! Even if your event is not open to the public, we still encourage you to register it so we can keep track of all the awesome events happening around the country.
STEP 3: PLAN YOUR EVENT.
Coordinate with any people and organizations who need to be involved. Create and agenda for your event and make a list of any materials or resources that you will need.
STEP 4: INVITE & PROMOTE.
Invite everyone you feel should attend, such as friends, family, colleagues, community members, and local environmental group members. Promote your event in any other ways that seem appropriate, such as through social media, email lists, community bulletin boards, neighborhood websites, and more.
STEP 5: FINAL PREPARATIONS.
In the few days before your event, send reminders to people you invited, let people know if there is anything they need to wear or bring, review your agenda, and make sure you have all the materials you need. Then just enjoy your event!
