Palos Verdes Celebrates Earth Day 2016!
Palos Verdes homes owners have a great opportunity to celebrate Earth Day with the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy on Saturday, April 23, 2016, at the White Point Nature Preserve. We have been celebrating Earth Day on April 22 in this country since 1970. The first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Act.
At White Point Nature Preserve from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., families can enjoy this Palos Verdes Earth Day celebration. From 9:00 to 12:00 noon, you can volunteer in the demonstration garden around the White Point Nature Education Center. At 10:00 a.m. the LA City Rangers will lead a family friendly nature hike to explore trails with native coastal habitat, blooming wildflowers and wildlife. From 11:00 a.m. to noon, there will be a nature inspired art activity by the PV Art Center’s “Art at Your Fingertips.” Bob Shanman of Wild Birds Unlimited will be having a workshop on “Backyard Birding” from 11:00 a.m to 12:00 noon. From noon to 2:00 p.m., there will be a sale of local plants from the nursery.
Volunteers can enjoy refreshments and snacks provided by Whole Foods Market Torrance along with a reusable bag/garden activity and Starbucks coffee. Toyota Motor Sales is sponsoring the event by providing gloves and supplies. The Conservancy’s outdoor volunteer days are sponsored by REI Inc., Wild birds Unlimited and the Harbor Community Benefit Foundation.
To sign up for the volunteer outdoor workday, please call Jill Whitman at (310) 541-7613 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Wear comfortable shoes and bring sun protection.
