From April 1 - 30, team members commit to concrete actions like carpooling, planting a tree, watching educational documentaries, spending more time outside, and volunteering in their communities. Points are awarded for each action taken. Actions are recorded systematically throughout Earth Month to demonstrate the cumulative impact of global participants. Join our team and start taking action
Member Movie Night (dinner included)
Thursday, April 20, 6.30 – 8.30 p.m.
Movie begins at 7 p.m.
All ages – Free
Racing Extinction (NR) is a 2015 award-winning documentary that takes a sobering look at the mass extinctions that are likely to occur if humanity continues to engage in actions that pollute and degrade our oceans and land. Scientists are estimating that half of the species currently on earth will be extinct by the end of the century.
The movie investigates the problems but also offers solutions and how we can work together to stop, and, in some cases, reverse the current course we are on.
Food (sustainable seafood and plant-based dishes) will be provided free of charge and a cash bar will be available.
Tickets are limited and must be reserved in advance. This is for members only.
