World Water Day in L.A. Sunday March 14th
March 4, 2010 § 2 Comments
There’s a new event coming up that’s brought to you by the folks who put together last year’s March for Water. It’s the World Water Day L.A. festival taking place from 9:30am to 3:30pm on Sunday March 14th at the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum. The address is 900 Exposition Boulevard, LA 90007 and the free event takes place on the south lawn. It’s part of the museum’s Sustainable Sundays series.
There will be lots of entertainment and activities for all ages. This includes plenty of educational programs, like the documentary film series with speakers and discussions. Film screenings include:
- 11am – ¡Aguas con el Agua! Maywood residents fight for clean, drinkable water
- 12n – Tapped: The hidden truth about bottled water (Creek Freak reviewed here)
- 1pm – Puberty Ceremony: The Winnemem Wintu tribe’s struggle to practice traditional rituals on their ancestral lands (Creek Freak’s time spent with the Winnemem Wintu told here and here)
- 2pm – Rural California Exposed: Communities drinking water contaminated with arsenic and other dangerous chemicals
It’s a bottled-water-free event, so bring your own reusable water container. Lots more details at the World Water Day L.A. website.
