Crawford Area Indivisible hosts a fun, informative and forward-looking event at the beautiful, shady Paonia Town Park from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. As part of the worldwide Rise for Climate! day, we’ll have free live music, speakers, sign making, crafts for kids, solution stations, a pledge board, cards to write to our public officials, a parade and more, including free digital kids’ portraits. Bring the family and a picnic lunch, chairs or blankets. No glass or alcohol allowed in the park.

Topics will include, among others, “Climate Change Effects in Western Colorado to Water Supplies,” “Effects to Wildflowers and Pollinators” and “Climate Activism in a Challenging Time.” Displays include solar ovens, electric cars and bikes, solar energy and more. Music from a variety of excellent local musicians. All are welcome.

In case of rain the event will be held in the Edesia Community Kitchen, 345 Clark Ave., just up Third Street from the park.
