Join us for a free all-community Earth Day Eve event to kick off Northfield’s 13th Perennial Earth Day Celebration.
Join us for a free Earth Day Eve event, Moving Us Forward: A Call to Action, on Friday, April 22, 2022 from 7 – 9 PM at the Grand Event Center (316 Washington Street, Northfield, MN 55057).
To provide a safer environment for all, we are requiring masks for this indoor event.
This climate action “mini-summit” is designed to build community with an interactive program highlighting local, regional, and state sustainability successes and launch a unified call to action in support of Northfield’s climate initiatives.
Panel speakers include Representative Todd Lippert addressing state initiatives, Northfield Environmental Quality Commission (EQC) member Bruce Anderson speaking about City initiatives and Northfield High School student Amelia Arnold highlighting local youth initiatives. Speakers will be followed by an opportunity for audience comments and questions.
Speakers will be followed by appetizers, drinks, music and “action table” exhibits that highlight a variety of service opportunities and organizations building collective impact on current and future community sustainability projects. The evening concludes with our traditional passing of the Earth Day flag.
This event kicks off Northfield’s 13th Perennial Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 23, 2022 (Rain date for Saturday events is April 30). Saturday morning starts with learning workshops and service opportunities. In the afternoon, we’ll proceed to Bridge Square for our Earth-Friendly Action and Idea Fair, Cannon Valley Farmers’ Market, a children’s program, music, food, Booker the bookmobile and more.
