In Boulder, we shoot to make every day Earth Day, but each April, the rest of the world celebrates with us.
Here’s a list of a few local events to help you get your green on.
The Boulder Valley School District will have its third annual Bike-to-School Day. Students can register at bvsd.org/saferoutes to participate. They will receive a free school lunch and coupons at local stores, as well as a chance to win prizes, such as bikes and tune-ups, helmets, bike lights, jerseys, bells and more. Go here for more info.
Alfalfa’s will re-open if you’re out and about in need of groceries. Check out the Daily Camera story: Alfalfa’s Market comes back to life in downtown Boulder.
We typically run on the Earth. Try running for it with the 9th Annual Earth Day 5k hosted by the Center for ReSource Conservation. The race starts at CU’s Research Park. Cost: $25/adults before April 30; $30/adults after. Register at Active.com.
I read somewhere that in explaining motives for action, it’s useful to have a villian. Well! How about a supervillain?
Friday was the third of five times the Kilowatt Kid (and some surprise evildoer) is scheduled to visit Strife’s class. The pilot program, which is being tried in eight classrooms across the Boulder Valley School District, is being supported by part of the $25 million in stimulus funds that Boulder County received earlier this year to expand local energy-efficiency efforts.
