Join the Earth Day Science Walk

Residents of Douglas County are invited to join their friends and neighbors for the Community Earth Day Science Walk on Saturday, April 22. Walkers should assemble no later than 1 p.m. at Calvary Lutheran Church parking lot at Sixth Avenue and Elm Street in Alexandria. The traditional Earth Day celebration is dedicated this year to science education and science programs at the local, state and federal levels.

Walkers are encouraged to bring signs supporting their favorite science issue or science in general. American flags are also welcome. A few ready-made signs will be available. Walkers are urged to be respectful and avoid naming political figures on their signs.

The walking route down Broadway to Third Avenue and back will be handicap accessible. After walking, everyone is invited to gather at Calvary to celebrate Earth Day.

In the event of rain, the walk will still take place and will not be rescheduled.
