How to Talk About the Climate Crisis | Apr. 14th, 12-1pm
The climate crisis can be overwhelming, scary, and hard to talk about in our daily lives – but it’s more important than ever to have hopeful, action-based discussions with our kids, our friends, and our communities. Join a panel of climate activists to learn how you can effectively talk about the climate crisis in your own life: to your kids, to your friends, parents, and colleagues, and to your legislators. In this interactive virtual event, you will hear from 3 experienced panelists and then choose one of the topics to explore at a deeper level. By the end of the lunch hour, you will have a toolkit of techniques you can use to inspire hope, science, and action around climate in your own lives.

Outdoor Climate Exploration | Apr. 23rd, 10am-3pm
at The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire, 6 Washington St., Dover, NH
Celebrate Earth Day with Climate Activities at the Children’s Museum of NH. ReVision Energy, local solar installer who designed and built the Children’s Museum rooftop solar array, will be on site with their Tiny Climate Classroom, hosting an assortment of climate activities for kids of all ages. The Climate Classroom will be parked along Henry Law Avenue.
Kids can climb around the Tiny Climate Classroom and touch solar panels, or do Yoga with Sunsquatch on the lawn. We’ll also be doing arts and crafts that highlight the power of the sun that the kids can take home. Swing by Henry Law Park & CMNH anytime from 10am-3pm on Saturday, April 23rd, and enjoy the sun with Earth Day climate activities.
Please note: While the Climate Classroom will be continually “open” from 10am-3pm, the Children’s Museum is closed for an hour from 12-1pm.
If you’d like to visit the Museum during your trip to see the Climate Classroom (and we hope you do!) please sign up for a space online for one of their play sessions, 9-12pm or 1-4pm.
Open Farm Day: Sustainability & Solar | Apr. 30th, 10am-3pm
at Farmer Dave’s, 437 Parker Road, Dracut, MA
Join Farmer Dave’s and ReVision Energy for a day on the farm. Pull on your rubber boots and learn how Farmer Dave’s captures the power of the sun to grow healthy food for our community. Farmer Dave himself will be hosting walking tours at 10am and 1pm of his greenhouses and fields. Visit ReVision Energy’s Tiny Climate Classroom and catch up with Stacey in the barn for a fun-filled children’s composting activity. Be the first to shop the Mother’s Day collection of large flowering hanging baskets, and of course the farm stand will be overflowing with fresh produce, scratch made bakery items, ready to eat meals, and more. All families attending the tours will receive a $25 voucher to spend in the farm stand at the end of the tour. Grab your family and friends for this open-air unique peek into how Dave grows your food. Make memories, take farm photos, and support local organizations working towards sustainability during Earth Month.
