Mobilize the Earth
This year’s Earth Day celebration will have all the fun of previous years, with music, speakers, open mic sessions, great t-shirts, and lots of community involvement at the Keene Recreational Center. Events and activities occurring throughout the week culminate with the festival hosted by Keene Recreational Center. In addition, in keeping with this year’s theme, “Healthy Communities, Healthy Planet,” we’re also planning service projects, workshops, nature walks, kid’s events, and more. Mobilize your family, co-workers and neighbors to come out a join together working towards a healthy community and healthy planet.
Community service projects will run throughout the week of April 15-21. Come and join us at the 2012 Monadnock Earth Day Festival celebrating our planet and community at the Keene Recreational Center from 9am to 4pm on April 21st.
