If you are looking for something to do this weekend, other than studying for finals or watching Netflix, you should check out the Tri-Cities Climate March!

According to the Tri-Cities People Climate March Facebook page, the event is set to take place this Saturday starting at 10:30 a.m. The march will start at the corner of University Parkway and West State of Franklin in Johnson City, Tennessee. There will also be free parking!

Anyone is welcome to participate in the event and it will be free of charge to join the march.

The march will be coinciding with another People’s Climate March that will be taking place in Washington D.C.

The Climate March hopes to bring attention to climate change and to educate people in the area about the environment and what you can do to help make a difference.

Before the march is to take place another event will be happening at South Side Elementary School at 9 a.m.

The event is called “Pedaling for the Planet”. This event hopes to encourage more people in the area to consider biking as an alternative to driving.

As with the march, anyone is welcomed to join the bike ride. The route will be 2.2 miles long and all flat.

Another event is set to take place that day after the climate march.

After marching to Founders Park there will be a tree planting event called “Planting Trees for Bees” in Oak Hill Cemetery, just across from Founders Park. This event is being organized by “What’s the Buzz Johnson City”, an organization focused on making pollinator friendly spaces.

According to What’s the Buzz Johnson City’s Facebook page, over 55 pollinator-friendly trees will be planted at this event. Be sure to bring gloves and a shovel with you!

If you were looking for something to do in Johnson City this weekend I hope I have helped you out! Hope to see you there!
