WNCW invites you to join us as a volunteer on Earth Day, April 22, to help build homes for Habitat For Humanity. WNCW staff will be on hand to take part, and City Bakery of Asheville will provide lunches for volunteers. Other dates are open to volunteer as well.

It's that time of year when most of us begin thinking about spring cleaning after the long winter, ECO-WNC will hold its second annual Earth Stewardship Day on April 27th.  Recently I spoke with Seirisse Baker, Water Quality Administrator for the Environmental and Conservation Organization of Western North Carolina, and she told me all of the projects that are scheduled for that day as well as where to find out about the other events being held to commemorate Earth Day.  Tune in on Friday at 8:50 a.m.
