The Mountain Goat Trail Alliance has been selected as one of the nonprofit groups featured in Planet Roo, a section of Bonnaroo Arts & Music Festival described as “an eco and social-activism village dedicated to promoting a socially responsible lifestyle.”
“Bonnaroo is a perfect opportunity to introduce people from all over the world to the Mountain Goat Trail. And with Bonnaroo’s theme this year being healthy communities, our mission of offering safe and healthy recreation from Cowan to Palmer is a perfect fit,” said Janice Thomas, MGTA board president.
Only 25 nonprofits are chosen each year for a spot in Planet Roo. MGTA is planning special exhibits, maps, and videos for their booth at the festival, which will take place from June 12-15.
Bonnaroo’s website claims, “We don’t just want to be the best festival. We aspire to be the greenest festival—and set the standard in sustainability and greening practices for North American concert events.” For more information on Planet Roo and Bonnaroo’s environmental programs click here.
