5Point Earth Day Pop Up
Date: Thursday, April 22nd & Friday, April 23rd
Time: 8pm-10pm
Location: Roaring Fork High School
Cost: $45/car

To celebrate Earth Day, we have put together a film program that showcases inspiring individuals who are using their creativity, passion and skill to help turn the tide in the fight to protect our planet. From Mongolia to Miami, to the remote Alaskan coastline, these are stories of adventure and conservation, and how the two can interact in powerful ways. If you’re in our hometown of Carbondale, Colorado, pull in, park, and join us at a special drive-in event for an all-new film program on either April 22nd or 23rd. The program also will be available online from April 24-May 2.
