North Central Michigan College will celebrate Earth Week April 17-23 with a variety of free and open-to-the-public events. Earth Day EveryDay serves to honor the many people and organizations in Northern Michigan who, every day, instill the principles of Earth Day into the life of our community. Its goal is to demonstrate the educational and career opportunities that are present right here in our own community and to inspire us to take personal actions to care for the Earth every day. All events are on the Petoskey campus unless otherwise noted.
On Monday, April 17, the film Seed: The Untold Story will be shown from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Library Conference Center. This documentary follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. The movie will be followed by a discussion led by Dr. Larry Dyer, Local Food Alliance, and Anne Morningstar, Bear Creek Organic Farm. Light snacks will be available.
All events are FREE and open to the public, but reservations are required. Please call 231-348-6613 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
Earth Day EveryDay is planned as an annual event sponsored by the Environmental and Sustainability Studies Program of North Central Michigan College in Petoskey.
