Earth Day Events, "Marches For Science" This Weekend On Central, South Coasts


April 22nd is “Earth Day,” and a number of events are taking place on the Central and South Coasts.

One of the biggest Earth Day events is in Santa Barbara’s Alameda Park, where the event has become so large it is taking place on both Saturday and Sunday. Other events are taking place in Ventura’s Plaza Park, and in San Luis Obispo at El Chorro Regional Park.

Meanwhile, a number of “Marches For Science” are planned in the region for Saturday, including marches in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo. They’re part of what’s turned into a global event. Organizers of the Santa Barbara march say it’s an effort to raise nonpartisan support for scientific research.

Lance Orozco has been News Director of KCLU since 2001, providing award-winning coverage of some of the biggest news events in the region, including the Thomas and Woolsey brush fires, the deadly Montecito debris flow, the Borderline Bar and Grill attack, and Ronald Reagan's funeral.
