Earth Day 2015 - It's Our Turn to Lead

That's the theme for Earth Day 2015 held at the Oak Grove School campus - 220 West Lomita Avenue. This year's fun-filled event will take place on Saturday, April 18, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Start the day out with a shoreline clean-up at Lake Casitas.

Then we encourage attendees to come by trolley (free for the day) or by bicycle and use the Earth Day bike valet. If driving, please park at the Ranch House or along Lomita Ave.

Plan to stay the day to enjoy music, food, sustainable transportation showcase, Go Green Exhibitors, student (our future leaders) displays and presentations, the Green Screen, and connecting as a community.

The day will end with a great raffle. Contact us to buy your tickets!
