Sheridan County will hold several events to celebrate Earth Day 2011.

This year will mark the 41st anniversary of Earth Day and three events are being planned to coincide with the day that is set aside to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s natural environment.

The 5th annual Miniature Art and Music Auction Grand Finale Gala will be held on April 21st at the Davis Gallery in downtown Sheridan.

“Celebrating our Wild Earth,” over 60 miniature artworks will be on display for bidding from April 11-21.  The Grand Finale will include the final auction of the artwork, live music, food and prizes awarded to the artists and musicians. Also up for auction will be mini-concerts donated by local musicians.

Carolyn Schroth from the Wyoming Wilderness Association explains how the music is auctioned.

Funds raised will go to the Wyoming Wilderness Association and used for education. Schroth explains.

The afternoon of April 22, the City of Sheridan will be celebrating Earth Day in Kendrick Park with a Recycling Fair which includes a tree planting and blessing, 20 exhibits and demonstrations, plus activities for youth.  Live music and vendors will also be on hand.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour will be shown at the WYO Theater and will bring the Earth Day celebrations to a close on April 23.

From remote landscapes and cultures to up close and personal, Sheridan’s show will include nine different films. This is the 2nd year the Film Festival has come to Sheridan and organizer Edith Heyward tells us what to expect.

Earth Day is observed on April 22nd each year by more than 500 million people in 175 countries.
