Not surprisingly, I’ve been getting a steady trickle of Earth Day notices in my inbox this week. What’s a girl to do when faced with so many ways to celebrate Big Mama? Right! Let someone else decide. And that’d be you. Which event are you most interested in hearing covered? Check out the list of possibilities below, and tell me where you think I should go (excluding the films- sorry, but a bunch of people staring straight ahead does not a story make). Oh, yeah. And pick one for yourself while you’re at it. Other ideas? Email me.
- 6:30 Screening of Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time, the first ever documentary about NM’s favorite not-quite-native son. At the State Land Office, Santa Fe.
- 8-1 Nature Conservancy’s Picnic for the Planet at the Santa Fe Farmer’s Market. With a goal of raising awareness about where our food comes from, it’s billed as the “world’s largest and most delicious Earth Day celebration.” Mmmm. I like delicious.
- 9-5 Find something amazing for that empty space on your wall at the Recycled Art Fair, at Albuquerque’s Open Space Visitor’s Center. Workshops too!
- 10-2 All sorts of good stuff going on at the BioPark. AND, if you ride your bike, some super-cute nature hipsters will park it for you. That’s service.
- 2:30 “Four Stories About Water”explores pollution problems on Navajo lands, both naturally occurring and manmade, at Northern New Mexico College.
- 7 (registration) Aveda Institute’s 2012 Walk for Water, a four mile walk in Albuquerque representing the average distance women in developing countries must walk to get water. $20 registration supports Western Resource Advocates
- 10-5 Celebrate the Earth Festival at the Nob Hill Co-op. Art, food, environmental groups, and all that jazz (rock ‘n roll too).
