Three ways to get involved on Oct 20 - 22

by Julaine Chattaway
here will be many ways this weekend to take action for a clean, healthy and prosperous future. No matter where in San Diego you'll be this weekend, you have many opportunites to get environmentally involved.

Whole Planet Expo - North County

Come celebrate the Whole Planet Perspective and experience San Diego businesses that support a holistic, earth-friendly lifestylse! For a $5 admission you can see over 200 exhibits and 40 informative lectures as well as listen to progressive music all day long. This is San Diego's largest market for holistic products and services all in one place.
The Expo takes place at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, O'Brien Pavillion. The Exposition hours are: Friday 2pm - 10pm, Saturday 10am - 10pm and Sunday 10am - 7pm. Happy holistic living!

2nd Annual YES Fest! - Downtown San Diego

San Diego Earth Day's second annual Youth Earth Savers Festival, YES Fest!, will be held in conjunction with the Parent & Child Expo at the Convention Center this year. Although this is a paid entrance event ($7, but discount coupons saving $2 can be found at Ralph's and in The Union-Tribune), you can expect to find a blend of family fun, interactive educational experiences and family-oriented products and services.
The Expo appeals to the intelligence, creativity and imagination of young children. By presenting topics such as ecology, science and art in an entertaining and interactive forum, we can challenge children and unlock their minds to unlimited possibilities. After all, these little people are the future; it just makes sense to start them out caring for our environment.

91X's Radioathon

On the FM airwaves Saturday, October 21 through Sunday, October 22, 91X will turn into the "Save the World Radioathon." During these hours you can bid on cool music memorabilia or call in to volunteer your time for San Diego Earth Day's Restoration Projects throughout the community. (See article at the left). For great music, memorabilia, fun and important environmental info, stay tuned to 91X this weekend. Proceeds benefit San Diego Earth Day's many efforts.
