Truma North America Celebrates Earth Day with Cleanup Event at High Dive Park

Truma North America is set to mark Earth Day with its 4th Annual Spring Clean-Up at High Dive Park in Elkhart, Indiana on April 20. 

The event, which starts at 9 am, will also feature the unveiling of new signage recognizing Truma as the park’s corporate sponsor, a testament to their commitment under Elkhart’s Adopt-a-Park program initiated last fall.

Truma’s involvement in the Adopt-a-Park program began in 2023, when it became the first company to adopt a park, taking on the stewardship of High Dive Park, as per the News & Insights report of the RV Industry Association (RVIA).

Since then, Truma employees have engaged in bi-monthly activities, including invasive species removal and general park maintenance, contributing significantly to the park’s upkeep.

The upcoming Earth Day event underscores Truma’s dedication to community engagement and environmental stewardship. 

“Enhancing and preserving our parks is a community job, and we are blessed to have businesses like Truma dedicate their time and energy to impact these in a positive way,” said Jamison Czarnecki, Superintendent of Elkhart Parks and Recreation.

The day’s activities will commence with the official unveiling of the Adopt-a-Park signs, which will formally recognize Truma’s sponsorship. Following the unveiling, volunteers, including Truma employees and community members, will engage in various cleanup activities such as litter removal and invasive species management until 1 pm.

Participants are advised to bring their own work gloves and wear comfortable, durable footwear, as the Parks and Recreation Department will only provide trash pickers and other necessary tools. The event is designed not only to clean up but also to foster a sense of community and personal responsibility towards local environmental concerns.

A special feature of this year’s event is a nature scavenger hunt for children, beginning at 9:30 am. This activity is aimed at educating young participants about local wildlife and plant species, while also providing a fun and interactive outdoor experience.

Concurrently, Truma is sponsoring the Earth Day Celebration at the Elkhart Environmental Center, also on April 20th. This event, which runs from 10 am to 1 pm, will offer additional family-friendly activities and educational opportunities focused on environmental preservation.

According to a 2022 report by the National Recreation and Park Association, events like these are critical in fostering community cohesion and environmental awareness. They not only provide direct environmental benefits, such as reduced pollution and ecosystem restoration but also promote public health and social well-being by actively involving the community in conservation efforts.

As Earth Day approaches, Truma’s initiatives at High Dive Park and the Elkhart Environmental Center highlight the role of corporate-community partnerships in enhancing local environments. These efforts reflect a growing trend among businesses to engage more deeply with their local communities through environmental stewardship.

Truma’s commitment to the Adopt-a-Park program and broader community engagement initiatives are set to continue, with plans to expand involvement in similar projects and to encourage other local businesses to participate in community enhancement programs.
