Earth Day is next week – hope all of you are planning to do something to celebrate. In fact – mark your calendar for the Truckee Tahoe Earth Day, Saturday, April 21 at Squaw Valley. I’ll be there tabling for Mountain Bounty – I’d love to meet all of our members and finally put some faces to the names I’ve gotten to know. You’ll also want to check out the Wild & Scenic Film Festival (an event I started and was the director of in Nevada City for 8 years!) The festival will kick off the TT Earth Day festivities at Squaw next Thursday & Friday nights.
