We told you that April always keeps us busy here at Wells Fargo, and this year was no exception. From hosting eco fairs, speakers, and movie screenings, to organizing campus clean-up events and community volunteer projects, our 65+ Green Teams celebrated April 22nd in style.

Take a look at some of our events and share your Earth Day stories!
