Join us, April 14th, 10am-4pm, and pledge to make everyday Earth Day.
As we enter our fourth year at The Ecology Center, we have come to understand that Earth Day is not just a day, but a way of life. We have had the honor to partner and collaborate with local friends and advocates to make this Earth Day unforgettable. It is our goal to bring the community together, to celebrate, educate and pledge to make everyday Earth Day. Learn and implement practical ecological solutions, enjoy porch-side music, fresh, local food and our annual Spring Plant and Seed Sale. Whether you are new to implementing earth friendly practices, been on the eco-path for awhile or somewhere in between, The Ecology Center offers everyone new ways to deepen and share your knowledge, while having a good time.
We have planned an exciting scavenger hunt that will be fun for the whole family. Beginning at the palm tree where a Barn Owl lives, friends and family can dissect the pellets to better understand the lives and habits of our winged friends. The rambling journey proceeds through all five of the Center’s Eco Labs to give you a chance to play with cob (a mixture of mud, straw, sand and water used to build ancient and modern homes and other structures), plant seeds, peddle a bike that makes smoothies, feed the chickens, discover aqua culture and bio remediation, observe a working farm and much more.
To celebrate and support our collective effort, each participant will be asked to pledge an action like growing a veggie garden, conserving water, or riding a bicycle. From there, The Ecology Center will help make these pledges a reality by keeping in touch with you, offering solutions and encouragement throughout the year.
To top it off, organic food and drinks will be offered, including a mouth savoring menu of “Mex-eco” from La Sirena Grill and other goodies like refreshments from Sambazon, VitaCoco, Guayaki and Kéan Coffee. Moonsville Collective will play their lively Bluegrass music that will be sure to get you up on your feet. Just in time for the gardening season, the Spring Plant and Seed Sale features organic heirloom vegetable and herb starts, available exclusively at The Ecology Center.
A special membership drive with added value is also offered. Hurley International, an influential and important advocate in water education, will donate t-shirts to those who sign up for The Ecology Center membership on Earth Day. Yoga Works in Laguna Beach will offer a free yoga pass to all new members. Typical of their unique and supportive method to spread the word through community, The Ecology Center will also sponsor eco-educational installations at Hobie Sports and the Yoga Works Laguna Beach location, sending the empowering message that We Are Earth Day.
With support from you and our community, The Ecology Center is planning to celebrate Earth Day like never before.
Don't miss it!
Made possible with the generous support of: Hurley H20, Hobie Surf Shops, Yoga Works, and La Sirena Grill.
