5 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day 

Earth_DayEach year during the week of April 22,  thousands of Alameda County residents take to the streets, local parks, creeks and auditoriums to advocate for a healthy, sustainable environment. Earth Day is an opportunity to highlight the most pressing environmental issues and to volunteer your time to help keep our most precious shared resource clean and healthy. We have culled a selection of local Earth Day 2014 activities for you and your family and encourage our members to get involved!
