Earth Day is all year, of course, but on one particular day each year, and during one particular week (or so), Ashevilleans and Western North Carolinians join in a worldwide celebration of our planet and the many ways we can keep it vibrant and healthy. Xpress has rounded up a list of events, an interview with enviro-faith author Mallory McDuff and — at our Earth Day Festival booth — seedlings that we’ll give out free for you to plant, courtesy of the local U.S. Forest Service office. Now celebrate!
Before you comment
The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.
