Calendar of Events for May

I was putting out a weekend planner every Thursday. This weekends Planner is rolled into the Earth Day Wrap up .
May is looking like a very busy month with lots of events and the Spring weather there are a lot of options. In finding things to do I was getting a little overwhelmed with the number of Events that looked interesting and would hate to forget to post something. In order to help better plan the month I am going to put what I have found for May so far here in a single post. If I find Specific Events for a given week I will add them as new posts but link back to here. BTW: Don't forget Mothers Day is May 11th
