Earth Day has interests for all ages

Learn more about sustainable living practices in a fun, family-oriented environment at Earth Day, celebrated from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 26, in the main quad at California State University, Sacramento.

Julia Butterfly Hill, best known for living two years in a tree to protest its destruction as well as that of the surrounding forest, is the keynote speaker. Her talk “One Makes a Difference” is at noon on the main stage. She also participates in a speakers’ forum at 1:30 p.m. Mumbo Gumbo headlines the entertainment, performing at 2:30 p.m. on the main stage. Japanese drummer group Taiko Dan plays at 11:15 a.m. and the Red Panda acrobats perform at 1 p.m., both on the main stage.

Earth Day includes children’s activities, eco-crafts, a healing-arts grove, wildlife presentations and classes on composting. There are over 175 educational booths and displays, some featuring organic farm products and vegetarian food.
