Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day with a “virtual” celebration from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22. Southern New Mexico Earth Day (SNM Earth Day) will be presenting an earth-friendly, virtual celebration featuring Las Cruces Green Chamber of Commerce CEO/President Carrie Hamblen hosting the event live on the group’s facebook page.

“The committee wanted to create something that was still interactive and purposeful, fun and informative, but bringing together people in a safe way while practicing social distancing,” Hamblen said. During the hour, there will be videos of local musicians A. Billi Free, Jackal, CW Ayon, and Allison Reynolds. In an effort to support local businesses, there will be prizes given to participants online from Organ Mountain Outfitter, local food trucks, a “Hit the Trail” gift package, and an Eco3 smart thermostat from Organ Mountain Solar & Electric. There will be tips and topics for protecting our planet and a possible sighting of a 3 year old African Sulcata Tortoise.
