Earth Day has been observed worldwide since 1970. This year it’s more important than ever.
Two coordinated events are being held on April 22 in Washington D.C. and in many cities around the nation including Fort Bragg: a March For Science and a Climate Literacy Teach-In.
Noyo Food Forest’s 11th Annual Earth Day Festival features a Climate Literacy Teach-In with presentations by scientists, students, and farmers; music all afternoon, and great food. Come join us on Saturday April 22 from noon until 5:00 PM at The Learning Garden on the Fort Bragg High School campus at 300 Dana Street. As always, it will be the best event of the year for kids. (Free admission. Donations requested.)
Volunteers Are Needed.
Also come meet with us next Tuesday March 28, 5pm at the Sequoia Room at North Coast Brewery Tap Room. Buy yourself a libation and sign up to volunteer—or just come hear what’s going on. This year we need extra help. We are working closely with the March For Science to ensure that both events are successful.
The March For Science will begin downtown at 10AM and ends at Bainbridge Park with a rally scheduled to end at 11:30. Some marchers plan to continue on to the Earth Day Festival, but a larger number are likely to be marched out for the day by then.
We are hoping to offer rides between the events. We also need help with many other tasks related to the Teach-In.
Come on out on Tuesday and volunteer to help produce the greatest Earth Day event ever.
