List your green event

The Eagle is launching a Green Scene calendar, an occasional listing we’ll publish here in the Home & Garden section on Saturdays. It will be a place to let people know about environment-related public events in the Wichita area, from river cleanups to recycling roundups. Here’s how to include an event:

• Submit it for free on our GO! Events searchable calendar at events.kansas.com. Events must be submitted by noon Wednesday for consideration for publication the following Saturday.

• Put the phrase “green scene” in the event description field.

• Give the event’s start and stop times and the venue name and address.
