The public is invited to join the Upper Susitna Valley’s 11th annual Earth Day Celebration, taking place on Saturday, April 16 from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Sheldon Community Arts Hangar in downtown Talkeetna.
The theme for this year’s celebration is "Tap into Spring." This locally sponsored and staffed event features a wide variety of exhibits and activities suitable for all ages. There will be food, crafts, art, short films, door prizes and lots of important consumer information. Free fair trade coffee will be available to those who bring their own cup, or can be purchased for $1.00 for those needing a cup.
The following items will be accepted for recycling during the day’s activities: cardboard, #1 and #2 plastics, aluminum, and steel cans. The event will not be able to accept glass and scrap metal. Recycling services are facilitated by ARAMARK.
Earth Day activities are made possible by many volunteers, businesses, and organizations that support sustainable living.
