Event description
Join us! Hosted by the LA Clippers as the Non-Profit of the Game. Honoring 4 recipients for the G.W. Carver Environmental Legacy Awards.

About this Event

The G.W. Carver Environmental Legacy Awards are in celebration of Black History Month as we recognize leaders within our community. We established this award 5 years ago, in honor of Dr. George Washington Carver, an inventor, scientist, educator, and conservationist. With this award we are able to recognize his accomplishments around conservation as the first African American pioneer of environmental advocacy. We will be honoring four community leaders at the Staples Center and it will be broadcast on television during half-time of the Clippers game.

A little about us:

California Greenworks was founded in 2003 to educate and train at-risk youth in watershed protection and wetlands restoration. Our mission: To enrich life in urban communities through neighborhood revitalization, environmental education, advocacy, and sustainable economic development. We implement programs and projects that advance environmental causes, focus on youth empowerment, advocate for urban parks & open spaces, and support green business.

Current programs include: Green Schools Native Plant Garden, Clean & Tree Community Beautification, Earthfest LA, the Waterlinks Urban Watershed Education Program, and more. Best of all, in 2020, our expansion plans include even more exciting initiatives.

This year, under the Clean & Tree Community Beautification program, we’ll add 300 trees to the urban forest of Los Angeles, and bring 6 Urban Community Talks to neighborhoods throughout LA, where community members can exchange ideas with great leaders from public policy, arts, health, urban forestry, agriculture, sustainable lifestyle, and social responsibility.

We hope you will join us for this celebration at the Staple Center, for a night of awards, auction and a great night of LA Clippers Vs. Memphis Grizzlies basketball.

*Tickets Include: Stadium Seating to Clipper Game, Access to Award Ceremony inside Staples Center, Hors d'oeuvre, a Silent Auction, and a CELA Advocacy Tote Bag.
