City Shows Its Green Streak for Earth Week
Article from the Manhattan Beach Patch
From solar-powered boats and wild-life exhibits, to good ol' rock n' roll, attendees of Saturday's celebration had plenty to enjoy. City ceremony will be held tomorrow at the Civic Center Plaza, by Andrew Kersey, April 21, 2010
Local environmental organization VOICE (Volunteers and Organizations Improving the Community's Environment), partnered with the City of Manhattan Beach to kick off "Earth Week" on Saturday, April 17 with a celebration in Polliwog Park.
Thursday, April 22, marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day celebrations in the United States. To honor this tradition of environmental stewardship, the City Council earlier this year proclaimed April 17-23 as Manhattan Beach Earth Week. A special ceremony will be held tomorrow to recognize local individuals who have contributed to making the city greener.
Saturday's event featured a wide assortment of activities, fresh food and family fun. Live music was provided by Police tribute band Fallout.

Tours were offered in the park's botanical garden, as well as 15-minute "eco-sessions" on topics ranging from energy audits and solar power to edible gardens and "zero waste" strategies.
Tomorrow, the city will acknowledge the environmental efforts of local schools and students during a special "Earth Day Birthday" ceremony beginning at 3:45 p.m. in the Civic Center Plaza.
