"AMERICA’S LARGEST EARTH DAY CELEBRATION"
The combined efforts of Earth Day Network (the nonprofit organization created by the founders of the original Earth Day in 1970)  and Green Apple Festival has resulted in plans for a nationwide gathering that will get Americans out of their homes and under the trees to celebrate Earth Day 2008. Eight Free Simultaneous Festivals in parks across the U.S. on April 20th 2008.
The Los Angeles Location will be at the Santa Monica Pier.
LACBC will be providing bike valet to encourage people to ride their bikes to the event. We anticipate a large number of bikes and need volunteers to help out.

Location: Santa Monica Pier
