HOW TO SPEND EARTH DAY WEEKEND IN AND AROUND MARINA DEL REY

Be the Change You Want to See!

This Sunday, April 22, is the 48th annual Earth Day—the one day of the year we officially show some love to our gorgeous, miraculous planet. The catalyst of the very first event in 1970 was a pretty ghastly oil spill in the Santa Barbara channel back in 1969. The devastation was so powerful, it spurred modern environmentalism and prompted major changes in policy. Today, Earth Day serves as a crucial reminder that protecting our environment is still a monumental priority—and it makes its impact through events that educate, create awareness and highlight green volunteer opportunities all over the world. And yep, that includes in and around Marina del Rey! You ready to honor Earth Day all weekend long?

Here are just some of the ways to honor this meaningful celebration—Saturday and Sunday.
