Event takes place Sept. 29 at Deane Dana Friendship Park and Nature Center
The Department of Parks and Recreation, in partnership with the Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council, invites the public to attend EcoFest – a FREE event that celebrates sustainable living practices and environmental awareness.
EcoFest takes place Saturday, Sept. 29, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Deane Dana Friendship Park and Nature Center, 1805 W. 9th St., San Pedro. It’s a festival that celebrates the fall season by promoting conservation of our resources, tree planting, garden preparation and rain water harvesting, while discovering many of the wild creatures that live amongst us in our coastal and inland communities. The event aims to encourage children and adults to explore ways that they can become better stewards of the Earth.
EcoFest will feature live music by Long Beach Unplugged, a free shade tree giveaway (to residents of the city of Los Angeles), a presentation on how to raise Monarch butterflies at home, a workshop and demonstration on rain-water harvesting and how to set up a rain barrel; face-painting, bug and animal discoveries, crafts, games, wildflower seed balls and chalk drawing.
Visitors may bring a picnic, as there are beautiful views of the harbor and Catalina Island.
