Public invited to participate in Parade of Species

Posted: June 21, 2012 - 11:02pm  |  Updated: June 23, 2012 - 11:01pm

Organizers at Discovery Southeast are inviting the public to get involved and get crafty in preparation for this year’s Parade of Species, which will be part of the downtown Juneau Fourth of July parade on July 4.

“We want to promote the rich biodiversity here in Juneau,” Christine Amor, of Discovery Southeast, said. “(We) just want participants to be creative and celebrate our environment.”

Amor said the nonprofit is inviting youth, adults, businesses and organizations to help craft costumes for the second annual event. To prepare for the parade, Discovery Southeast has teamed up with The Canvas for a morning of costume-making from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 30.

“We’re trying to follow the theme of the parade — red, white and blue — to promote things like fish and intertidal species, birds ...” she said. “(Basically,) anything we can thing of that is red, white, or blue.”

There is no charge to attend the event at The Canvas and some materials will be provided.

Amor said individuals are welcome to craft outdoor-inspired constumes on their own, as well. She said people can just show up the morning of the parade to participate. She said Discovery Southeast also has costumes from past years for loan.
