Earth Awareness Day
During the September First Friday, the Jones House will be hosting Earth Awareness Day on the lawn and an indoor art reception featuring the Alcohol Ink Group’s show “Inkalicious.” Come out to the Jones House from 5:00 to 8:00 PM to learn about the Town of Boone’s sustainability programs, including recycling, water conservation, litter prevention, Adopt-A-Street, and Watch for Me NC. The town will celebrate its 25th designation as a Tree City USA and the first year as a Bee City USA with refreshments and live music from the KING BEES! Local community groups including ASU’s Sunergy Car and the Sustainability Department and the Watauga County Bee Keepers Association will be on the lawn, too!
