Earth Day is an annual event celebrated in April to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Locally a series of Earth Day events are planned to celebrate Mother Earth and all the bounty she provides.
The West Valley Warner Center Chamber of Commerce will hold their Earth Day event on Saturday, April 15, from 10 am to 2 pm.
The free family celebration will include a tree giveaway and seed planting, exhibits from L.A. Sanitation, LADWP, Santa Monica Mountains Fund, Sustainability Professionals Network, California Native Plant Society, LA Conservation Corps and more.
For the kids there are climb and bounce activities, a critter squad, face painting and arts and crafts.
There will be entertainment and special performances throughout the day.
Over 1,000 Earth Day posters from local valley schools will be on display.
There will be demonstrations from LAFD and LAPD, as well as exhibitors, food trucks and entertainment.
The Earth Day event will be held at the Tarzana Recreation Center, 5655 Vanalden Avenue.
The event is co-sponsored by Councilmember Bob Blumenfield, the Tarzana Neighborhood Council and the City of Los Angeles Department
of Recreation and Parks.
The City of Calabasas will hold their Earth Day Festival on Sunday, April 23 from 2 to 5 pm. The free event will include a green expo, free giveaways, learning booths and a wildlife presentation. Exhibitors include L.A. County Public Works Department and LADOT Transit, Tree People, Waste Management and more.

The Calabasas Earth Day will be held at Las Virgenes Creek at Agoura Road (directly west of and behind Starbucks Coffee).
The area adjacent to the creek was restored by the City of Calabasas for a 1.5 mile stretch from Agoura Road to DeAnza Park. Visitors can follow the natural walking trail along the creek and see the bank stabilization, removal of
non-native invasive species, and the over 900 native trees planted along the creekbed.
