Earth Day Celebration with young Maine poets will be held via Zoom

AUGUSTA — The Natural Resources Council of Maine and The Telling Room will hold a special Earth Day celebration with young Maine poets reading their original work inspired by Maine’s environment.
The public is invited to hear their poetry, followed by a conversation about what inspired their work. “Zoom In: Earth Day Youth Poetry Reading and Discussion,” will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, April 22.
When news about climate change, pollution, and deforestation feels overwhelming, solace can be found in both poetry and the younger generations — both may lift spirits by injecting fresh perspectives and reminding us why we work so hard to protect the nature of Maine.
The event is free, but registration is required. To register, click here, and a Zoom link will be emailed.
