Palos Verdes homes owners have a wonderful 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 17, 2019, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 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 as well as opportunities to learn more about water conservation, storm water pollution prevention and energy efficiency. There will be FREE paper shredding available and 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 20, 2019, 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 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., Dryad Flutes will be giving a live musical performance. From 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, Art At Your Fingertips Art Activity will present planned activities & crafts for families to enjoy. From 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m., the Native Plant Sale will take place.
