Every year on April 22, over a billion people in 190 countries take action for Earth Day. From San Francisco to San Juan, Beijing to Brussels, Moscow to Marrakesh, people plant trees, clean up their communities, contact their elected officials, and more — all on behalf of the environment.
Like Earth Days of the past, Earth Day 2014 will focus on the unique environmental challenges of our time. This year’s theme is one we have worked diligently to promote, sustainable communities.
As we continue to work forward to completion with our plan to grow smart and live green; we ask that you participate in some manner to honor the Earth. Here are a few activities planned for Earth Day 2014:
- La Jolla: Birch Aquarium, Saturday, April 19 from 9 am to 5 pm.
Visitors can take part in special hands-on activities, create eco-friendly crafts, and learn more about scientific exploration activities. The aquarium is located at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, 2300 Expedition Way, La Jolla.
- San Diego: Balboa Park, Sunday, April 27 from 10 am to 5 pm.
Billed by sponsors as the world’s largest Earth Day celebration
- Oceanside: Downtown Oceanside, Sunday, April 27 from 11 am to 5 pm.
The Oceanside Green Fair is the north county’s largest Earth Day celebration. The event will be loaded with fun and engaging activities for everyone.
No matter what you choose to do we hope the idea of Earth Day and the sustainability theme empowers and motivates you to participate in the collective action of a billion people around the world.
Or better yet, help us make Lilac Hills Ranch become the benchmark for sustainable communities.
Do it for the planet!
