Earth Allegiance is dedicated to the proposition that all creatures are created equal. With this vision we unite all people of the world through a common pledge. Earth Allegiance was inspired by and created to emphasize the urgent need for continued environmental and wildlife conservation for all life forms, many of which are already endangered or on the verge of extinction. It is in recognition and support our national and international parks, as well as the other countless organizations and individuals in our communities that dedicate efforts to preserving and protecting nature. We encourage others around the globe to come together in celebration and commitment and use this pledge as a template to illustrate the myriad of endangered species native to their own parks and backyards.

Recreation and Wellness
As the heart beats, the soul shines. Restoring physical, mental and emotional health through the benefits of regular physical activity, diet and outdoor interaction. As society increases the acceptance of technological recreation, we witness decreasing numbers of people of all ages participating less in outdoor activity and personal interaction. This program will focus on youth, disabled and elderly participants and assist them to establish a daily regimen that will instill essential elements necessary for optimal health and well-being. Through positive example of self-initiated behavior, participants will be empowered to take charge of their daily health habits, and personal communication skills.

Art as Therapy
The “Process and Understanding of Letting Go through Self Expression”. Celebrating the art of existence. Art is used as a tool for wellbeing, social transformation, education, communication, and exchange. Participants of all ages learn how to recognize and identify with their feelings and express them through color, line and form. We explore emotions, thoughts, patterns, dreams, reactions and interactions through the technique of spontaneous painting. Through this approach we engage in visual communication and creative expression as a process of non-confrontational sharing of internal & external experiences.
