Eugene Earth Day Celebration!

22 04 2011


Happy Earth Day!  Please help us celebrate Earth Day 2011 tomorrow at EWEB’s River’s Edge Plaza from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.  There will be dozens of local organizations out sharing information and fun.  

The 13th annual Earth Day Celebration is an environmentally-based event that celebrates the Earth and its resources. This year’s event theme is You Are Here and features over 40 educational activity booths, the relocated Lane County Master Gardener’s Annual Plant Sale, the John H. Baldwin Film & Lecture Series, a musical main stage, a Procession of All Species, important community awards, and much more! The event is produced by the volunteer efforts of the Earth Day Steering Committee.

The Eugene Water & Electric Board will be awarding two grants of up to $100,000 each to local renewable energy and education projects, as chosen by EWEB customers who are signed up for the Greenpower program. The two winners (the finalists are chosen from organizations that are either tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations or academic institutions) will be announced on the main stage at 1:50 p.m. Also on the main stage this year, at 11:00 a.m. Mayor Kitty Piercy will award the bi-monthly Bold Steps Sustainability Award, given to businesses that have incorporated the triple bottom line thinking into their daily business practices.

LTD will provide free bus shuttle service from the downtown station to EWEB’s River Edge Plaza during event hours, with special stops at Saturday Market.
