TranscriptionSegment 113: Earth Day Air Date: April 19, 2005 Tease @ 15:43 "The Village at Heavenly is going to be hosting an Earth Day celebration this Saturday. I'm Shelly Purdy, coming up on the Lake Tahoe Report, I'll tell you a little about the history of Earth Day and what you can expect at this year's event." Anchor Intro: There are a number of Earth Day events planned at Lake Tahoe and in Reno in the coming weeks. In tonight's Lake Tahoe Report, Shelly Purdy takes a look at the history behind Earth Day and what is planned at this year's events. TAKE PKG ((Track 1)) This year marks the 35th anniversary of Earth Day in the United States. And, this year, Earth Day celebrations will be held on both sides of Lake Tahoe and in Reno. The South Shore event will be held this Saturday at the new Village at Heavenly. The event drew some 3 to 4-thousand people last year, and organizers are expecting an even bigger crowd this year. ((sot @ 11:38 Jessica Schwing, Earth Day Planning Committee Chair)) "We will have educational booths both on the upper and lower level. We'll also have a kids area with a lot of neat activities for kids." ((Track 2)) There will be bands, entertainment and lots of food. But the focus of the event will be on education. ((sot @ 12:08)) "Of course, the most important part of Earth Day is we'll have all the local agencies here and non-profits out here educating us with ways to protect the Lake Tahoe environment." ((sot @ 14:44)) "What I'm hoping people come away with is an idea of maybe it's just one or two small things that they can do to take care of the environment that they live in." ((track 4)) With the Lake Tahoe Environmental Education Coalition, I'm shelly Purdy for KOLO News Channel 8. Anchor Still Store: Earth Day celebrations will be held in South Lake Tahoe at the Village at Heavenly this Saturday from 11am-5pm. Another celebration will be held at the Village at Squaw Valley in North Lake Tahoe on April 30th.
