Come one, come all – the Gallatin Earth Celebration is happening April 16 to 22.
What started as a town-wide cleanup day to coincide with Earth Day in 1989 has exploded into a weeklong series of events focused on service, education and awareness of local environmental issues. With events ranging from CleanUp Day to Bike to the Brewery to lectures conservation and climate change, there’s a good way for everyone to celebrate Earth Day in their favorite way.
Events are planned every day of the week, from Monday to Sunday. All are designed to “inspire environmental stewardship and pride of place,” according to the ASMSU Sustainability Center, who hosts the event in an alliance with the city of Bozeman, Montana State University, high school and university student groups, local businesses, and nonprofit organizations.
