Palos Verdes Celebrates Earth Day 2020 Online!
Palos Verdes homes owners have a wonderful opportunity to celebrate Earth Day while following the “Stay at Home” order. Although we will not be able to celebrate the activities originally planned, there are several opportunities that the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy would like to share with you.
On Wednesday, April 22, 2020, at 3:00 p.m., you can participate via Facebook or Instagram in a White Point Nature Preserve virtual “live” tour. The Live Event from the White Point Nature Preserve can be seen on Instagram @pvplc and Facebook at pvplc.org. Conservancy Volunteer Coordinator, Megan Wolff, will tour the Preserve native plant demonstration garden and talk about the wildlife that thrive on the restored plants. She will also be describing the fascinating ways the Tongva people used these plants and as well as the history of the location as the former Sepulveda Ranch, home to Japanese abalone farmers. Megan will also discuss the fact that the land was also used as a Nike missile assembly site which the Conservancy repurposed into a Nature Education Center. Later that day at 8:00 p.m., you can tune in to the National Geographic Channel (Cox 108) for “Born Wild: A Live Earth Day Event.” This is a breathtaking journey around the world witnessing and celebrating the diversity and splendor of charismatic baby animals, their families and habitats. You can also enjoy another Earth Day film by National Geographic on Jane Goodall called “The Hope” airing afterwards at 9:00 p.m.
