We are a day away from the 41st anniversary of  Earth Day and to celebrate the day, and also to welcome in the coming spring, we’ve got a few fun-filled events lined up. We would love to see you at one or both!

Tomorrow,  Earth Day, April 22, Madison Environmental Group, Inc. will be celebrating in Viroqua, WI at the Newenhouse kit home under construction. The Newenhouse kit home will be Passive House and LEED Platinum certified, and will not need a furnace even in Wisconsin winters! There will be tours of the home every hour, cake, maple lattes, old time music, and good times. This is a family friendly FREE event , from 2-6pm.  Click here for directions (2 hrs NW of Madison).  You are welcome to make a day of it as Earth Day also falls on Good Friday this year.  Call Sonya Newenhouse for more details or ideas on what else to experience in the Driftless region.  (608-220-8029)

Then, coming up on April 29th from 4-6:30pm EnAct and Community Car are hosting a Gear Up for Happy Hour Event. The event starts on the sidewalk outside of our downtown office, which is right above The Old Fashioned Restaurant. Bring your bikes and get free bike tuning with lessons on basic bike maintenance from DreamBikes and Machinery Row Bicycles. Then at 5pm take a relaxed bike ride with us to the Memorial Union by way of the Capitol City Trail where we will welcome in Springtime with a happy hour drink.

Can’t make it to bike tuning? Meet us at the Memorial Union at 5:30pm- look for the EnAct and Community Car table sign!

We hope you are able to join us in the next few weeks as the weather warms up. If you can’t make it to one of our events be sure to check out the Isthmus , UW Arboretum or the EnAct calendar for other great ways to get out of the house and into your community for Earth Day this spring!

Thank you for being green on Earth Day and everyday!

The EnAct Team
