This Saturday, September 15th, has been dedicated to cleaning up the coast on our local Southern California beaches and along Ballona Creek, and then, afterwards, celebrating at EarthFest, an Expo and Concert at West Los Angeles College in Culver City.
With the mission of making Southern California waters safe, healthy and clean, local environmental groups Heal the Bay, the Surfrider Foundation, Ballona Creek Renaissance, and Los Angeles Waterkeeper have all called for Angelenos to join the world’s largest single-day volunteer event – the 23rd annual Coastal Cleanup Day to be held Saturday, September 15, 9 a.m.-noon.
EarthFest's Environmental Expo will be held directly afterwards in nearby Culver City, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a jazz concert from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. All are welcome. It's a great day for kids of all ages to celebrate and learn about the growing green economy, our impact on the planet and ways to take care of it, and to learn about the fracking that is taking place above Culver City and affecting all our waterways.
