Things are heating up. And we mean all across the planet, not just here in our river valley. And it’s time to do something about it.
The infamous Cuyahoga River fire(s)offered a visceral, visible symbol around the globe, sparking the environmental movement. As we mark our 50 years of progress, celebrations are happening everywhere: stop by Kent’s “Who’s Your Mama” block party, help clean up Forest Hill Park with the Doan Brook Watershed Partnership, learn about conservation hands-on at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo’s Party for the Planet, or take in Fire Museum historian Paul Nelson’s talk at CWRU’s Kelvin Smith Library.
This week’s CoolCLE PODCASTfeatures a conversation with Amy Rosenbluth of Lake Erie Ink, plus new music from Cleveland’s Shy Moon and Michael McFarland. Time to get fired up. –Thomas Mulready
