Earth Day | Restore Our Earth

A Month Long Celebration!

AFFEW has been working diligently to bring several safe community events to celebrate Earth Day 2021! We’ll begin with a five week Zoom presentation series starting April 6 that includes a wide range of topics. We’ll also have a fun presentation on Michigan native reptiles and amphibians, perfect for families! In addition we’ll offer some guided hikes locally and a self guided informational quiz walk at Cartier Park.

Tuesday, May 11 | Solar 101 | CANCELLED!!

We’re disappointed to report that Tuesday’s Solar 101 presentation has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances with the speaker. AFFEW’s board of directors will work to bring a presentation on this topic in the future. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We hope you have enjoyed the other presentations and events that have taken place over the past five weeks in celebration of Earth Day!

Earth Day Celebration Goes VIRTUAL

Due to our concerns for the safety of the public and volunteers during Covid-19, AFFEW’s board of directors have cancelled the April 18 Earth Day Celebration.

Instead we have listed below several resources from organizations that will host virtual events to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. We can still make a difference as we stay home and be safe!
