We are going to begin having planning meetings for April Earth Day events. If you would like to participate in these meetings, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with times and days of the week that might work for you.
Conservation themed art exhibits to go in library, post office, and store windowsâ€”this could involve a partnership with local art teachers.
Hikes to the â€œhighest pointsâ€ in Towns: Wrightâ€™s Mountain, Tucker Mountain, Sawyer Ledges; Pinnacle, etc.
Slide show or film festival, for example: â€œ15 second short films on I-phones and digital cameras that could be put onto various computer screens for a village show. The kids can make up many kinds of skits to do with nature, green-up, trees or what-have-you, and act/edit, and then have them playing at an open house. For that matter, if there’s a flurry of them, local TV stations may be willing to put a few on TV if asked.â€ (Peggy Willey, West Fairlee)
