Thanks to Earth Day volunteers
Thank You to our amazing volunteers, nonprofits, agencies, musicians and community for attending and contributing to the success of our Second Annual Earth Day in Cambria on April 21.
The Cambria Forest Committee, Beautify Cambria, Unitarian Universalist Church, Greening Los Osos and the Cambria Nursery promoted native tree and plant propagation, restoration of Cambria’s unique Monterey Pine Forest and coastal watersheds, educational hikes, nature and advocacy programs, an economically viable and attractive village atmosphere, and spiritual, science and youth education opportunities.
Greenspace kicked off its 3,000 Trees initiative and the 30 or more tree growers recruited will take care of their seedlings until planting this fall!
Soto’s True Earth, Wild Ginger and Chef Angelica Peach provided delicious, locally sourced food grown in the watershed and stewardship through healthy and sustainable farming practices.
Friends of the Elephant Seals, and ECOSLO — The Environmental Center of San Luis Obispo, Camp Ocean Pines and Pacific Wildlife Care promoted wildlife protection, a healthy ocean environment through enjoyment, education and outreach, annual beach clean ups and docent programs.
The Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary’s Coastal Discovery Center provided a hands-on demonstration of how to maintain a healthy watershed by avoiding storm-water pollution, state Fish and Wildlife and State Parks were on hand to answer questions and educate on local coastal policies and wildlife protection. Sammy the Steelhead, eco mbassador, was a wonderful addition this year.
Special thanks to our incredible musicians including local favorites Dulcie Taylor, Tim Jackson, Cassi Nicholls, Damon Lord and Miss Leo with her feisty fiddler, percussionist Tracy Morgan, George Nauful, and emcee Brandon Follett. The Kid’s Zone was coordinated by Greenspace Director Amanda Darling and featured face painting by Sara Blair Field and nature based activities inspired by Sue Davis, leader of the monthly Greenspace Nature Club.
Winners of the local poster contest from Coast High School, Santa Lucia Middle School and the Cambria Grammar School are: Branwen Ryan, Lily Hoffman, Lysha Figueroa, and Eduardo Cruz. These talented winners will provide the artwork for the 2020 Cambria Earth Day publicity.
Thanks so much from the entire board and staff of Greenspace — The Cambria Land Trust and Soto’s True Earth Market Mary Webb, President, Greenspace
