Saturday, April 29, 2017

10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Join Friends and neighbors on April 29, the final day of Earth Week 2017, to show your support for our river, our air, and our communities. On this day, hundreds of thousands of people will come together in cities across the nation for the Peoples Climate March to demand clean air, water and a stable climate for future generations. You don’t have to go to the main march in Washington, DC to participate; your local community needs you here!
