The Nature Institute will host the first ever Riverbend Earth Day event in a couple of weeks. On Saturday, April 14, people will gather at the land on Levis Lane from 10am-4pm. There will be folk and bluegrass music, make-it and take-it workshops for adults and kids, and a couple of local mechanics who have converted their personal vehicals from gasoline to electric.

Organizer Ann Bromagin says there will be something for everyone.

She says there will also be plastic pot recycling, clothing swaps and textile collection. There will also be four films shown in the Talahi Lodge beginning at 10. Those are "Turning the Tide," "Power Shift," "So Right, So Smart," and "Awakening the Dream." For more information on the event, call 551-5020.
