Earth Day Celebration Goes Drought Tolerant at the Coastkeeper Garden

Free event to celebrate Earth’s sustainable future with edible gardens, natural obstacle courses and SmartScape tours

WHAT: Spring has sprung and Earth Day is the perfect occasion to explore its drought-tolerant landscapes and the vibrant colors they have to offer. Orange County residents are invited to celebrate Earth with guided SmartScape tours to learn all about the implementing and maintaining their own beautiful SmartScape.

The day will be filled with engaging activities for the whole family such as investigating insect habitats, trying on beekeeper suits and running through natural obstacle courses. Girl Scouts will be onsite to demonstrate how to grow vegetables and showcase the Edible Garden. This action packed day will be complemented with sounds of spring played by local musicians from the Orange County Performing Arts High School.

WHY: Earth Day celebrates the beautiful planet we call home. Responsible landscaping practices ensure that it stays beautiful, even in the midst of California’s drought.

Spring is the right time to start planning for a drought-tolerant yard transformation by visiting the Coastkeeper’s demonstration garden. The Coastkeeper Garden showcases six different vignettes and offers all kinds of resources through its SmartScape program.
