Sustainable Sundays: A Different Shade of Green

Natural History Museum, 900 Exposition Blvd, Los Angeles

In
this new series, the Museum becomes a forum in which visitors learn
about international conservation issues, and then can interact with
organizations that actually do something about those issues.

Bikes,
slow food, farmers market and homesteading advocates appear today, and
eco-chef Aaron French gives a talk and cooking demo focusing on food
ecology (12:30 pm). Conservation International’s Jen Morris is also on
hand to talk about investing in pro-conservation small- and
medium-sized businesses around the world (2:30 pm).
