This year's event will feature more than 100 environmental exhibitors, animal shows, children's activities, entertainment, an eco-friendly car show, bike rodeo, compost workshops and much more...

Special exhibit: The Wyland Foundation's Clean Water Mobile Learning Experience

The City of Thousand Oaks celebrates its 50th year as the Wyland Foundation celebrates its 20th!

The non-profit Wyland Foundation was founded in 1993 by renowned marine life artist Wyland to promote, protect, and preserve the world’s oceans, waterways, and marine life. In the Mobile Learning Experience, you’ll learn about preserving our nation’s water habitats with a 4-D theater experience, hands-on science activities and actual running rivers and rain!
