TALKEETNA — The upper Susitna Valley’s 12th annual Earth Day Celebration is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., April 21 place at the Sheldon Community Arts Hangar in downtown Talkeetna.

The theme for this year’s celebration is “Community Earth.” Earth-friendly products, information, arts and crafts will be available to peruse or purchase in order to demonstrate how local choices can benefit the health of the global community.

Free fair trade coffee is available to participants who bring their own mugs or other beverage containers. Those without a container can purchase coffee for $1.

ARAMARK is facilitating recycling for this event.

Community residents and other participants are encouraged to bring cardboard, No. 1 and No. 2 plastics, aluminum and steel cans for recycling. The event will not be able to accept glass and scrap metal.
