On September 8th, thousands of events will be held in cities and towns around the world to bring awareness to climate change, help promote green living, learn about local vendors who can help make a difference and call on our local leaders to commit to building a fossil free world that works for all of us.

We have invited city officials and local candidates to discuss their position on environmental topics. There will be local providers of good and services to help you go green and make better decisions for yourself and the environment. Meet with representatives from social and environmental groups and attend talks with open Q&A sessions from experts and thought leaders in their field.

Join us Sept. 8th from 3-8 PM at the Rusty Mule for an inspiring and informational afternoon. The Rusty Mule is a family friendly outdoor venue situated on 3+ acres of heavily treed open land. There is a playscape and plenty of room for kids to run about (but not pets, sorry), food truck and a full service bar. There will be live music and representatives from social and environmental groups to learn more about all the possibilities to move the needle in the right direction.
