AZ conservationists to rally for ‘Environmental Day’

More than 140 people are expected to go green at the Arizona State Capitol.

Conservationists and other environmental advocates representing 24 different legislative districts plan to meet with lawmakers Tuesday for Environmental Day.

The theme for this year’s event is “Conserve Arizona — Water Wildlife, & Wildlands.”

Volunteers will focus on bills involving issues such as the endangered Mexican wolves, State Parks heritage Fund, historic preservation and green building codes.

Participants will meet at 8:30 a.m. in the Historic Senate Chambers of the Capitol Museum to hear remarks for Clarkdale Mayor Doug Von Gausig.

After spending the morning with legislators, volunteers will attend an interfaith prayer vigil on the Senate Lawn at 12:30 p.m.

  1. Honestly, 140 activists doesn’t seem like a whole lot of people. I doubt the Arizona legislators will give them much hope in passing Environment Day unless they had several hundred people contact the Legislators directly requesting the same.
