Earth Day is this Friday, April 22nd. A celebration intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the natural environment, there will be plenty of events going on around the world as well as right here in Seattle.
One of the events is happening right around the corner in Gas Works Park. The Sierra Club, CoolMom, Earth Ministry, Washington Environmental Council and Climate Solutions are hosting a free community Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 23rd between 11am and 3pm there.
The event will celebrate Washington’s anticipated transition from coal-power while highlighting the need to support the E.P.A. in its efforts to protect people across America from the dangerous pollution associated with coal burning and to make sure we do not export coal to other countries where no E.P.A. exists.
The event will feature bands, food, speakers and a make-your-own-kite activity. For more information on the event and Coal-Free Washington, visit their site or check out the event’s Facebook page.
