The holidays are right around the corner and that means it’s time to prepare for the season by giving back to the environment that sustains us — be it the fish we eat or the water we drink, there is plenty to be thankful for.
This month there are a lot of great green events, from sand dune tours, habitat restorations to a little turkey trotting. Here’s a snippet of what’s in store this November.
>> Fall is in full swing, so why not stop by a festival on November 5 at the Aquarium of the Pacific for an Autumn Festival. With an Asian theme this year, you can expect delicious cuisine, fine arts and cultural festivities the whole family can enjoy.
>> What’s a salt marsh? Find out on a cool tour hosted by Friends of Ballona Wetlands on November 13, where you can learn coastal ecosystems and explore the wonders of nature right in the middle of urban Los Angeles.
>> Celebrate Cambodian culture on November 19 at MacArthur Park, where the third annual Cambodian Arts & Culture Exhibition will take place. Stop by for hands-on art and cooking demonstrations, gardening tips and other sure-to-be good times.
>>Did you know that clean beaches are all the rave these days? FCEC agrees. On November 19 Heal the Bay will be at the famous Venice Beach for their Nothin’ But Sand Beach Cleanup.
>> Turkeys trot and so do humans on Thanksgiving in Long Beach on November 24! Come on out for an event that promotes health and exercise. It will also allow you the perfect excuse to indulge later in the day.
>> It is time to put your thinking cap on. On November 29, the will be holding a monthly lecture sponsored by the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Cetacean Society that is sure to inform and educate.
