What does clothing made of trash have in common with an oyster slurp? These are just two of the many activities being sponsored by Bainbridge organizations in honor of Earth Month: April 2018.

In this podcast, BCB host Christina Hulet sits down with Christine Perkins, President of Sustainable Bainbridge, and Deb Rudnick, Chair of the Bainbridge Island Watershed Council, talk about the many events and activities planned for the month of April.

There are activities for people of all ages and interests–from tree walks in Winslow to weed-pulling parties, from an oyster slurp to a trashion show (think fashion show with recycled materials), from events at our wineries to our farmers’ market.

Many organizations on our island are hosting events to celebrate our natural environment. They include: the Bainbridge High School Earth Service Corps, Bainbridge Island Historical Museum, Bainbridge Island Land Trust, Bainbridge Island Parks District, Bainbridge Island Rowing, Bloedel Reserve, the City of Bainbridge Island, the Farmers’ Market, IslandWood, KidiMu, the Kitsap Audubon Society, Montessori County School, Puget Sound Restoration Fund, Sustainable Bainbridge and Weed Warriors, among others.
