April is Arbor Earth Month
New format, new focus and new location this year!
In keeping with our strong commitment to the environment and our trees, the City is once again looking forward to hosting Arbor/Earth Day. This year’s event will take on a new format that allows us to better engage with our residents by providing a setting to host both indoor and outdoor activities, and by adding additional activities throughout the month of April. Our main event will take place on April 28 at the Grant Brimhall Library. We are looking forward to being able to provide more in-depth engagement and education on topics that our residents have requested.
The celebration will include films and discussions, kids shows and activities, displays, hands-on workshops and presentations. Professionals and staff will be on hand to answer all your sustainability-related questions.
We are still working out the details, but here is a sampling of what’s coming:
- Tree Care: Ask An Arborist! – A presentation on tree care and opportunity for residents to talk to a City arborist about their trees or regulations related to City trees.
- Solar and Home Batteries – Everything the homeowner needs to know!
- Electric Vehicles – Will this be your next car? Get the scoop from knowledgeable professionals!
- Eco-show for kids – Entertainment for kids of all ages while delivering the recycling message
- Reuse art - A mixed media event for kids to create their own art
- Drought in Thousand Oaks (film) - David Grannis, CLU Professor presents his documentary on drought and its local impact
- Fire and drought (presentation) - Dr. Glen MacDonald, UCLA Professor and former Directors of UCLA’s Institute for the Environment and Sustainability presents current research in this field.
- Master Gardeners plant sale
Stay tuned! We’ll be adding more specifics as we get closer to April and more events from our partner organizations that will take place throughout the City.
