Marching music will be led by Brass Balagan.The rally will feature young people speaking to their concerns regarding threats relating to species extinction – which, if not dealt with effectively, will have a devastating impact on their future. There will be a special focus on pollinators and aquatic life, ie: species that are most threatened at this time in Vermont due to agricultural pesticides and toxic pollutants in lakes, ponds, and waterways. Musical interludes during the rally will feature environment-related songs led by Aro Veno and Friends.
