April 22, 2010 marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. NWEI will be hosting an Earth Day Celebration, at our Southeast Portland office– and new and old friends are invited to join us for food, drink, celebration and conversation.

NWEI’s “Earth Day Happy Hour” will start at 4:30pm on Thursday, April 22nd.  Stop in after work and you’ll have the chance to find out more about NWEI and our small-group discussion courses, as well as fuel up for the hard work ahead in the sustainability arena with some snacks and Rogue Brewery beer.

All are welcome–if you have no idea what NWEI is all about, stop by and find out.  If you’re a long time volunteer- we’d love to see you on the 22nd too! And everyone else in between–stop in, say hi, and find out how you can take action this year towards a sustainable future!
