April 22 is Earth Day and Wyomingites are commemorating the 46th anniversary with a host of events statewide including: a campus clean-up, sustainability fair and recycling drive at the University of Wyoming in Laramie; a National Outdoor Leadership School hosted evening barbeque and adventure film festival in Lander City Park; gardening workshops at Food for Thought in Casper; “Earth Day Olympics” at the Cheyenne Botanical Gardens; a trail clean-up and raptor presentation in Cody; and a fair in Green River.
In Jackson, the Nature Conservancy and Jackson Hole Wild will show two documentary films. One of the films, “Our Local Epic,” tells the story of the first descent of the Clark’s Fork of the Yellowstone river near Cody. The other, “Wildways, Corridors of Life” outlines the challenges of keeping ecosystems intact. Between the screenings, WyoFile’s Angus M. Thuermer Jr. will moderate a panel discussion and question-and-answer session.
