On Earth Day in April, millions of people look for something
meaningful to do for the environment. In San Diego, more than 70,000 people
are expected to attend San Diego Earth Day's seventh annual EarthFair in
Balboa Park on Sunday, April 21, 1996 from 10am - 4pm.
Featuring more than 250 educational exhibits and five stages of entertainment,
the EarthFair is the largest free environmental event in California. EarthFair
is produced by more than 400 volunteers, managing the Earth Parade, parking
bicycles, setting up exhibits, answering phones and separating recyclables.
San Diego Earth Day hosts activities year-round, and
volunteers are needed before the EarthFair, too. Projects for 1996 include
The Campaign for Sustainable Food Choices, the EARTHie (Environmental Action
and Restoration That Helps) awards, the VIP (Very Important Planet) Reception,
a silent auction and a breakfast for business leaders, as well as the EarthFair.
