TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Squaw Valley Academy, a private international boarding school near Lake Tahoe, cordially invites you to join a gala celebration of the natural environment, “Heritage,” on Saturday, May 10, 11:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Student organizers have planned an art exhibit and music performances and invited local environmental organizations to share their work and dialogue with community members.

Students in SVA’s pottery class have worked all year long to produce beautiful ceramic bowls for sale, with the proceeds to benefit Project MANA, a local group which works on food accessibility issues.

The Squaw Valley Academy Dining Services will cater the event.

This special event brings together local and national environmental organizations and local artists to highlight the importance of the individual, the local and the global in the cause of environmental protection.

As we celebrate and honor all that Mother Nature has to offer, discuss environmental issues specific to the Tahoe/Truckee area.

SVA is located at 235 Squaw Valley Road, Olympic Valley. For more information call 530-583-9393 or visit http://www.sva.org.
