One of the primary goals of the Passionist Earth & Spirit Center is to promote the concept of the sacredness of the earth, from the soil to its inhabitants. One way they do this is by offering Environmental Justice Tours to Louisville’s most contaminated area throughout the year.
The first Environmental Justice Tour of 2013 happens this Saturday, January 26, from 9:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
The tour is meant to give an overview of what is happening in the community, pollution-wise, and to illustrate that the most contaminated sites in the city are located in specific neighborhoods, many which are considered dis-advantaged.

The cost of the tour is $20 and reservations are required, as space is limited.
The tours scheduled for 2013 are:
So, if you have an interest in the environment or have a budding environmental activist in your family, this tour may be for you.
