The Grannies will greet arrivals at 3:45pm with their dance of the butterflies and sing on stage at 4pm.

At 5:00 pm, the students will lead a march around downtown Palo Alto with friends, families and community members, returning back to King Plaza for further conversations at tables where local climate protection organizations will discuss the importance of switching to electric appliances and other things to protect Earth’s climate. Everyone will be invited to hang their Earth Day pledges on a "Pledge tree.”
