On Saturday, April 22, Lopez Island Conservation Corps (LICC) invites the community to join in on the seventh annual Procession of the Species. The Procession kicks off promptly at 3:30 pm, so plan to arrive at 3:00 to get set up.
To participate in the procession, all you need is a costume or adornments that display any living thing--animal, plant, fungus--wearable while walking.
Only three rules govern costumes: please, no written words; no motors; and no living animals. This is a free, all-ages event, rain or shine, and open to all members of the public.
Need help creating your costume? In partnership with the school, LICC is sponsoring a costume-making workshop in the school's Art Room on Saturday April 15 from 10 am- 2 pm. A LICC representative will be on site to advise, assist, and provide art materials to bring your creativity to life. Children must be accompanied by their parents.
As it did last year, the Procession will begin and end at Lopez Village Water Tower Park. Animal costumes and accessories will be available before the parade, for those who haven't had the chance to make their own but still wish to participate. Spectators are also very welcome!
This Earth Day celebration is sponsored by the Lopez Island Conservation Corps (LICC) and Lopez Island Prevention Coalition (LIPC). For more information about this event contact: Erin Licata, firstname.lastname@example.org.
