It's Easy Being Green on Saturday
. It's eay being green, as you'll discover Saturday at competing ecological expositions in Huntington Beach and Long Beach.
The third annual Huntington Beach Green Expo takes over the Pier Plaza area from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Guests will learn about local green businesses and ways to live a more eco-friendly existence.
HuntingtonBeachGoesGreen.com has a full list of vendors and sponsors.
But it's greater in Long Beach, which hosts the Green Is Greater Festival from noon to 6 p.m. at the Gaslamp restaurant. There you'll find music, art, fundraising and celebrating aimed at bringing Greater Long Beach's often-fragmented environmental movements closer together.
The Wildlife Conservation Board's grant of more than $5 million to the Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority to acquire Seal Beach's 100-acre, environmentally sensitive Hellman property will be feted at the festival, which organizers hope will become an annual event.
Co-sponsor Heather Altman has the full scoop on her EgretsNotRegrets.com blog. The Gaslamp, which is donating a portion of proceeds to attending organizations, is at 6251 E. Pacific Coast Hwy., Long Beach. Email EgretsNotRegrets@gmail.com or phone 562.596.4718 to see if there are any more tables available.
Admission is free to both the Surf City and LBC events.
