Earth Day Events Around the Idaho, Including IEF Chair Speaking at Flying M Nampa

From the Idaho Falls to the Magic Valley to the greater Boise area, several Earth Day events are planned around the Gem State. 

Liz Roberts, a member of the Canyon County Citizens’ Climate Lobby and past participant at Idaho Energy Freedom’s Education Day at the Capitol last January is planning an event for Earth Day on April 27 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Flying M in Nampa. 

The events of the day will include kids’ activities and a panel discussion including IEF chairman Peter Richardson at 11 a.m.

There are four groups tabling during the event sharing information about food and agriculture, electrification, public lands, and advocacy opportunities. 

“We are hoping to highlight the benefits of electrification this Earth Day, and hear from folks  like a heat pump installer or solar energy system owner so that we can educate people on the benefits of clean electricity,” said Liz Roberts.

The City of Boise is also planning an Earth Day Celebration hosted by its Public Works department. KRBX Radio Boise will provide music, and there will be live art, games and activities, food trucks and an electric vehicle car show. Attendees will learn earth-friendly tips like planting a free shade tree, switching to green energy, growing a pollinator garden, or eating local. If you bring a t-shirt you’ll be able to create your own Earth Day wearable art at the free t-shirt press.

One April 22, Twin Falls Public Library is hosting an Earth Day event from 4-6 p.m. The Idaho Falls Zoo also has events slated beginning at 10 a.m. on April 27, including half-price admission for kids.
