meeting. We're having two meetings in February:

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 10:00am - 4:00pm.
Featuring more than 250 educational exhibits and five
stages of entertainment, the EarthFair is the largest free environmental
event in California. Over 400 volunteers produce the EarthFair, managing
the Earth Parade, parking bicycles, setting up exhibits, answering phones
and separating recyclables.
Volunteers are needed before the EarthFair, too. Current
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.
San Diego Earth Day is a year-round, volunteer-run non-profit
organization dedicated to a clean, healthy and prosperous future. Events
throughout the year encourage people to take individual action for the future.
