Wednesday, September 20, 2PM @ Rockefeller Park

o Climate Week Nature Walk. Join us at the Park House to explore Rockefeller Park through a naturalist’s lens. Learn about the animals and plants that call the park home, and how climate change impacts all of us, and how we can build a sustainable future together!

Thursday, September 21, 5:30PM @ Belvedere Plaza

o Interludes: Cumbia River Band. In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month and Climate Week, join us for a special performance by Cumbia River Band. Drawing from a festive repertoire of Colombian Cumbia and Riverside melodies, their sound features instruments such as the tuba, accordion, clarinet, percussion, and vocals, resembling the golden era of Cumbia with an American twist. Led by multi-instrumentalist, producer, and educator Martin Vejarano, the band’s original compositions and cleverly arranged classics will transport you to the captivating musical world of Cumbia River. Get ready for a musical adventure to remember!

Friday, September 22, 6PM @ 6 River Terrace

o Movie Night: The Lorax. Families are invited to a screening of the animated film based on a children’s book written by Dr. Seuss. Twelve-year-old Ted lives in a place virtually devoid of nature; no flowers or trees grow in the town of Thneedville. Ted delves into the story of the Lorax, once the gruff guardian of the forest, and the Once-ler, who let greed overtake his respect for nature.

Saturday, September 23, 10:30AM @ Rockefeller Park House

o Saturday Family Workshop: Esther Crow. In celebration of Climate Week, join us for a fun zero waste activity, nature walk, and live performance by the Esther Crow Family Band.

o Fall Serenade at Resonating Bodies. Celebrate the Fall Equinox with singer and songwriter Cecily Music and her band in a sweet serenade for the new Fall season under the trees. Meet at the intersection of Third Place and the Esplanade at the public art sculpture Resonating Bodies by Tony Cragg.
