Squaw to Host Tahoe Truckee Earth Day Festival
[Olympic Valley, Calif.] April 7, 2014 -The 2014 Tahoe Truckee Earth Day Festival will once-again return to Squaw Valley Saturday, April 19. The free community event takes place in The Village at Squaw Valley from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and gives kids and adults the opportunity to learn about recycling, composting, alternative energy, and sustainability through hands-on activities the whole family can enjoy.
At a diverse array of earth-friendly booths, participants can get dirty in the "composting zone," explore new ways to recycle, learn about solar energy, and check out the "EarthCapades" - a series of environmental presentations designed to teach viewers ways to protect and preserve Earth’s natural resources.
The event also boasts live music, raffle prizes, a dance presentation, “Trashion” show, and free community recycling event to collect old or used household batteries.
The Tahoe Truckee Earth Day Festival is free to the public and T.A.R.T. will be offering free return bus services from the festival to North Lake Tahoe, Incline Village and Truckee.
The Tahoe Truckee Earth Day Festival is a "zero-waste" event. Food and biodegradable waste will be collected by volunteers and Incline Village General Improvement District's (IVGID) Waste Not to be composted. In addition, all food vendors will use biodegradable take-out containers. Past events have yielded up to a 95 percent diversion from landfill.
