Tomorrow from 10 am until 2 pm at Wildcat Glades in Joplin, join forces with Wildcat Glades Friends Group, City of Joplin, Liberty Utilities, Missouri Department of Conservation, and Missouri Master Naturalists to save the planet!

This free community-wide nature event demonstrates the importance of the Earth while emphasizing the need to invest in nature and native plants.

Also, Joplin’s Empire Market turns four years old on Saturday. The market is the place to find the best in locally grown produce, gourmet foodstuffs, and handmade artisan goods. They’ll be open and celebrating starting at 10 am Saturday.

And if you’re looking to wind down on Sunday night, join KRPS as the station hosts the Waitiki 7 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Retro Cocktail Hour. The Hawaiian-themed concert gets underway at the Bicknell Family Center for the Art Sunday night at 7.
