On Saturday, April 9th, the Long Beach Water Department will join the Aquarium of the Pacific in hosting its annual Earth Day Celebration. The event will be held from 9AM to 4PM and is free to the public. A coupon good for $10 off admission to the Aquarium on the day of the event has been made available on the Water Department’s website at www.lbwater.org.
Last year’s Earth Day Celebration at the Aquarium drew an estimated 7,000 people. This year’s event will offer kids’ games, an interactive local wildlife exhibit and live music. It will also feature a California Friendly landscaping section, which will include a plant giveaway by the Long Beach City College Horticulture Program and local landscape designers that will be on site to answer general landscaping questions. Earlier in the day, the Water Department will offer a free landscape design class in the Aquarium that will run from 8:30 AM to Noon.
The combined Long Beach Water Department and Aquarium of the Pacific Earth Day event is the largest Earth Day event in Long Beach and draws broad participation from a variety of local and national environmental organizations.
