This Earth Day, Monday April 22, Teton Valley is going to celebrate with a fun, free community event aimed at bringing people together and welcoming spring.
Join us on Monday April 22 from 4 to 6 p.m. for a free family-friendly Earth Day Fair at the Wildwood Room (7705 Lupine Lane) in Victor. This event will showcase over 30 different local non-profits, schools, farms, and businesses highlighting some of their projects and “green” practices. Each booth will have activities for kids, free giveaways, or useful information that you won’t want to miss.
RAD Curbside will be rolling out their new community cleanup with free orange bags and a chance to earn free garbage service in exchange for cleaning up your neighborhood roads.
Fall River Electric is bringing their “propane train” for the kids and free LED bulbs for members.
The Teton Raptor Center will bring some of their live raptors.
Teton Valley Community Recycling will be giving away free backyard composters and simple instructions.
We’ll have a play area for the kids and a bouncy house (weather permitting) and much, much more! Visit tetonrecycling.org for a complete list of booths. Snacks will be available for purchase and some booths may have free samples.
For those who can’t make the fair, in the evening we will be having an Earth Day Film Festival screening two award-winning documentaries: “Elk River” which tracks the Yellowstone elk migration and “WASTED: The Story of Food Waste” highlighting efforts made by acclaimed chefs like Anthony Bourdain to curb food waste in creative ways.
The films will be shown on Monday evening April 22 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. with the opportunity to purchase drinks and a wonderful, locally-sourced meal from chef Bill Boney. We’ve also invited local food producers to share their information and help all of us learn how to reduce food waste. Suggested donation for films is $5/person or $10/family. Make it a date night! It will be a great evening.
These events are organized by Teton Valley Community Recycling, the Teton Regional Land Trust, and Full Circle Education, with generous financial support from Silver Star Communications, Bank of Commerce, and the Wildwood Room. We hope to see you at the Wildwood Room this Monday!
