Climate Bash takes aim at global warming – Ashland Daily Tidings
The public is invited to attend the Rogue Valley Climate Bash from 7:30-11 p.m. Friday Feb. 15, at the Historic Ashland Armory, 208 Oak St., Ashland. Doors open at 7.
Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for students. They can be purchased at the event or at https://bit.ly/2SXszSs.
“The Climate Bash is a community event that aims to educate and inspire local area residents to take action to address the climate crisis,” according to a press release.
This year’s event will highlight the work of eight local organizations that work for a healthier climate future such as Rogue Climate, Ashland Community Solar and Electric Vehicles Ashland.
Executive Director Tonya Graham of the Geos Institute, event organizer, said the point of the event is to bring people and ideas together to better adapt to climate change.
“The Bash is all about showing how the work we are all doing is needed and inviting people to help with whatever aspect makes the most sense to them,” Graham said.
Beer, wine and food will be available for sale and music will be performed by Alice DiMicele’s band Petty Thievery.
“It’s not every day we say, ‘climate change’ and ‘dance party’ in the same sentence but coming together as a community is critical given what we are up against,” Graham said.
In celebration of Valentine’s Day, the theme this year is “Love Your Climate.”
The Geos Institute is a local organization that works to create climate change solutions for communities and the natural environment. This event was also held in 2017.
