April 21, 9:45am - Earth Day Celebration:

  • Downstairs: all-age event hosted by Julie Shaull to show us why and how Friends can join (and encourage) neighborhood and City efforts to restore the environmental health of our end of the bicycle corridor. Downstairs activities will feature a talk and slide show by Sue Reindollar. Sue created the diverse and beautiful Dudgeon Monroe Prairie at Odana and the S.W. Bicycle path, and has worked with other neighborhood enthusiasts through years of growing, planting, and tending vegetation.  Hands on activities will include making seed-bombs and playing creative group nature games.
  • Upstairs (9:45am-11am): come find out what other Quakers are doing in the community to help the earth! There will be tables in the main worship room that will showcase 350-Madison, Farley Center, Citizens Climate Lobby, The Prairie Enthusiasts, and more. See how you can get involved in these organizations to help the earth. Also there will be sign ups for discussion groups and a challenge pledge table hosted by the middle schoolers.
