Palos Verdes Celebrates Earth Day 2018!
Palos Verdes homes owners have a great opportunity to celebrate Earth Day at several different locations here on the Peninsula.
The Cities of Rolling Hills Estates, Rolling Hills and Rancho Palos Verdes, in partnership with Waste Management, South Bay Environmental Services Center and Promenade on the Peninsula, are hosting an Earth Day Celebration on Wednesday, April 18 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Promenade on the Peninsula, near the fountain area. This is an enjoyable family event with colorful themed educational activities and giveaways for all. This event will also be highlighting great environmental initiatives around the community and opportunities to learn more about water conservation, storm water pollution prevention and energy efficiency. There will be FREE paper shredding available – the truck will be parked in the lot adjacent to El Pollo Inka.
Promenade on the Peninsula is located on Silver Spur Road between Hawthorne and Crenshaw Boulevards at 550 Deep Valley Drive, Rolling Hills Estates. All stores and restaurants will be open during the event.
Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy’s celebration will take place on Saturday, April 21 2018, 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 year’s Palos Verdes Earth Day celebration. From 9:00 to 12:00 noon, you can volunteer in the demonstration garden surrounding 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. At 11:00 a.m., Art At Your Fingertips Art Activity will present planned activities & crafts for families to enjoy. From 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m., areas will be set up so that you can learn more about volunteering in the native plant garden or at the Nature Education Center.
Volunteers can enjoy refreshments and snacks that will be provided. The Conservancy’s outdoor volunteer days are sponsored by the City of Los Angeles, REI Inc., Starbucks Coffee, Water Replenishment District and the Harbor Community Benefit Foundation.
