8 Highlights of Earth Day LA

Yesterday, aka April 22nd,  aka Earth Day, The Music Center teamed up with Grand Park, the LA Department of Water & Power, Alternative Travel Project, Armstrong Gardens, Heal the Bay and a slew of other eco-conscious companies to celebrate Earth Day.  There were information booths, art-making activities, tutorials. performances, plants and food from The Music Center plaza all the way through the park to city hall.  It was green, it was educational, and it was all around great!

In case you missed out on the fun, here’s a quick recap in 8 easy doses…

1.  Busloads of school children hit the plaza for recyclable crafting and hanging their own pledges for eco-friendly living on our Earth Day tree.
