Granby Rotary and Middle School celebrate Earth Day

Granby, CO Colorado

Earth Day in Granby is in May, and is a long-standing tradition in Grand County to celebrate it one month after the fact.

This could be attributed to the old saying, ‘Grand County Time’, but actually it has much more to do with what the weather might do at 9,000 feet on April 22, the traditional global day for celebrating the earth. “Who knew the weather would have been so nice that we could have celebrated this year on the actual day?” said Kristie DeLay, committee chair for the Granby Rotary’s Earth Day festivities.

This year, 6th grade students at East Grand Middle School will plant trees, cleanup trash, and give a presentation on Thursday, May 17 at their school.

Infinite West is a sponsor of the event and will volunteering and learn, along with the students, the importance of nurturing and caring for our planet.

Volunteers are needed from noon to 4 p.m. May 17, or the evening of May 16 to help dig holes for trees to be planted. Please contact Infinite West for more details.
