CECA to present third annual Coshocton Earth Day Festival

| April 10, 2018

COSHOCTON – Coshocton Environmental and Community Awareness (CECA) is privileged to present the third annual Coshocton Earth Day Festival on Saturday, April 21 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Coshocton County Career Center, 23640 Airport Rd., Coshocton.

CECA is an educational 501c3 located in Coshocton bringing the community together around ideas that promote the common good. They have made the issue of climate change a priority because despite the warnings of scientists, the nation continues to exacerbate a crisis that is about to grow beyond our control. Their goal is to bring scientific, cultural, and spiritual earth advocates into the community who are using their knowledge, values, and practices to sustain the viability of our planet.

For those who would like a space to present earth-friendly values, raise money to support a group protecting the environment, or provide education about preserving the earth through culture or science, contact CECA at 740-327-6161. This is an indoor event in the large commons area of the Coshocton County Career Center. Tables provided for presenters and free admission to the public.

At present, the state and federal tax deductions and credits for renewable energy are still available. A solar panel installer will be attending to discuss solar energy systems. If you are interested, ask your power company how many kilowatt hours you used in 2017. If you share the information with the installer, he can give you a free estimate for the size and cost of the system you will need. He can also explain how the government can help you with the costs.

They will also have tables with presentations by organic farmers and food producers, green technologies, local scout troops, recycling programs, a number of children’s activities, a presentation of live rescued raptors by the Ohio Bird Sanctuary, bobcat, bat, and bee researchers and climate scientists from OSU, local beekeepers, herbalists, wildlife managers, environmental activities, and information on water protectors and other environmental issues. Electric vehicles will be on display.

The Coshocton Quilters Guild will be sharing and promoting their traditional art form. The Yellow Rose Cloggers will be performing and offering a half hour Appalachian Folk Dancing class. The Thunder Nation Dancers will be discussing the meaning of their Native American dance performances and Mark Thunderwalker will play the Native American Flute.
