Ed staff: please share the wiki edit-a-thon invitation link that Ryan shared below with folks you know who might be interested – teachers, grad students, undergrads, docents, or friends.  The more the merrier.

Hi Carol!


I am hosting a Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon on the Environment and Art in MacMillan June 11th. I am hoping to get a good crowd of people to attend, so far I have about 7-9 RSVPs. I am looking to invite anyone who might be interested in learning how to edit and create Wikipedia articles, connect with the local Wikipedia community, and learn something about American art and the environment. Lunch and a special tour will be provided for attendees! I was wondering if you may know of anyone or any group who might be interested? I appreciate your help!
