Nature in the City and a group of committed volunteers are pleased to announce our plans for McLaren Park Earth Day 2007, a FREE, day-long celebration at McLaren Park on Sunday, April 22nd. Our mission is to create a volunteer organized, non-commercial, grassroots Earth Day celebration of urban nature, intended to dissolve the boundaries that exist between diverse San Francisco communities.
San Francisco’s McLaren Park is a large, ecologically rich natural resource, but it is severely short-staffed and underappreciated. By inviting people, especially those who live nearby, to participate, we hope to create a sense of belonging and stewardship at McLaren Park.
During McLaren Park Earth Day 2007, Mclaren Park will transform into an outdoor classroom. Attendees will gain access to San Francisco’s environmental leaders including activists, artists, educators, musicians and scientists. There will be hands-on experiences like nature walks, restoration projects and talks as well as art installations, dance, live music, poetry and plays. There will also be an eco-stewardship fair, a native plant sale, and food and vendor booths.
