I hope you’re all out enjoying Earth day today – here are a few events I found from around the internet:
- Earth Day celebration Golden Earth Days Council’s 21st annual Earth Day Celebration will be from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Barnes & Noble Bookstore, 14347 W. Colfax Ave., Lakewood. The celebration includes a “meet the authors and artists reception” from 6 to 8 p.m. for book signings, photographs, art displays and live music with Colorado Mountaineering Club author Dave Cooper, Renewable Energy author Carol Tombari, oil painter Blair Leisure and Native American flute music by Bear Limvere. There will also be solar cooking demonstrations with Patty Roberts from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; dog adoptions with Hope for Animals; renewable energy exhibits and environmental tips; and complimentary wildflower seed packets and cookies (while they last). Attendees will receive a GEDC sticker to wear so a percentage of any purchases made at Barnes & Noble will go towards GEDC’s environmental awareness and protection efforts.
