See Pics From Our Earth Day River Clean Up & Concert w/Illiterate Light!

Since 2014 when we launched Hear Together, our award-winning series that spotlights organizations making a difference in our community, WNRN has highlighted hundreds of organizations and events over the airwaves. As part of our 25th anniversary celebration presented by Rockingham Insurance, we will bring the spirit of Hear Together from the airwaves into our community with a spectacular Earth Day River Clean Up & Concert featuring rock duo Illiterate Light unveiling their new bike-powered sound system. Thanks again to collaborators Rivanna River Company and the Rivanna Conservation Alliance for their efforts and to Potter’s Craft Cider, Blue Mountain Brewery, and 3 Roads Brewing for supporting our vision for this event!
