Fall is in full swing and there is no better time to lend a few hours to better our environment! There are a lot of great opportunities this month to lend a few hours and also some great events you won’t want to miss. Volunteering is like Thanksgiving every day! So come on out!

>Have some electronic waste you want to dispose of properly? Planet Green is holding an e-waste pickup in Chatsworth on November 12th and 13th. You’ll feel good that 100% of the proceeds of the event will go to Superior Street School.

>TreePeople will also be in South LA taking care of some fruit trees on November 13th. So drop off that e-waste and trim a tree! Sounds like a bountiful Saturday to us!

>Want to learn more about what’s going to happen to Echo Park Lake’s stormwater improvements? If so, come out on Saturday, November 13th where the City of Los Angeles Department of Public Works will be hosting a workshop on the forthcoming rehabilitation.

>Not free to volunteer during the weekend? Not a problem. On Thursdays this month TreePeople will be hosting tree planting outings in Coldwater Canyon Park and they can always use a few extra set of hands!

>On Sunday, November 20th Heal the Bay will be making sure sand is the only thing found on the beach of Playa del Rey, so come on out to help collect trash! The ocean will thank you.

And if you have any upcoming events, please send them on over to us and we will be happy to include them in our community calendar.
