The April 19 event at Floyd County High School will be free and open to the public.
Speakers, panelists, vendors of water and nature-care-related products as well as water, soils and geology professionals will be present. They will meet with interested county residents who want to learn how to help maintain both adequate quantity and quality of water in the county.
Since its inception by Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970, Earth Day has been an annual opportunity for civic and church groups, schools and universities, municipalities and national organizations to take a fresh look at how we might work more effectively towards a healthier planet.
We may not agree on the global issues or the solutions, but we can all agree that the planet could be cleaner and healthier for the living things that reside here.
Locally, our primary concerns are water, sustainability and earth-care issues in Floyd County and the surrounding region.
Visit the website for Floyd Earth Day 2008 and get involved in the future of Floyd. Do your part to keep Floyd green.
There is a signup sheet for vendors, volunteers and those who just want to be informed of developments.
