Last Events of semester THIS WEEKEND!

I know this is the final stretch of the semester -- so i wanted to give all those who are suffering, a bright shining light at the end of the tunnel. Here are the last club events of the semester:

THIS SATURDAY, May 22nd -- from 10AM-10PM is the GREEN LONG BEACH FESTIVAL! This is a great way to connect with the community that we belong to and also have a lot of fun! There will be lots of bands, guest speakers, and environmental education workshops throughout the entire event. Check out more info about the event: Greenlb.org -- The Environmental Club is listed as one of this year's 2010 festival hosts!

We still need a lot of help during the day of the festival!! So if you have time to volunteer -- please, please, please e-mail glbvolunteer@gmail.com or reply to this e-mail. There will be a special volunteer meeting this friday, May 21st @ 10AM (430 E. 1st Street).

THIS SUNDAY, May 23rd -- is the rescheduled MALIBU BEACH SAFARI event to celebrate public beaches with signwatching, trailblazing the public-private boundary, and a public easement potluck.
Where: Come to the public beach accessway between 22140-22126 Pacific Coast Highway (~.5 mis west of Carbon Canyon Rd. and ~1 mi. east of Malibu pier). Park on either side of the PCH (cross with caution), and walk through the accessway to the beach. (Or take the 534 PCH bus!--nearest stop is Carbon Canyon Rd.-- www.metro.net.) Please allow for plenty of time to find a parking spot, since availability of beach parking is unpredictable.
When: Choose 1 of the 3 start times (each lasts ~1 3/4 hrs). 9am, 11:30pm, and 2pm.

Rangers should arrive at the base of the accessway (on the beach--look for the uniform) to assemble each safari at least 15 minutes in advance of each start time. If you arrive early, you can walk on the wet sand anywhere, and on the dry sand (at least 10 ft. from the houses) on the FIRST 4 PROPERTIES TO THE LEFT (downcoast). Please do not use the dry sand upcoast or elsewhere.
Bring: Snack for the potluck (just for you), water if you need it, sun protection, and extra layer for warmth.
Please note: No bathroom available at meeting point--Try the fast-food restaurants just upcoast on the PCH.

Hope to see you at these events!

Last Official Meeting: Special Presentations

The end of semester is quickly approaching -- and we still have a few more treats for everyone!

This Tuesday, May 4th (12:30-1:30 USU-350) we're having special presentation from all the club officers and committee chairs. AND we'll be announcing the steward award for the semester. This will be the last official club meeting for the semester.

If you are interested in being an officer/committee chair next year, please come to this meeting!  The current officers and committee leaders will be giving a short presentation about what each position involves.  To be an officer/committee leader next year you need to let us know at this meeting, or by email in the next week or two!  The meeting will be short, so that we can answer questions and talk more with those of you interested. 

Next week we'll have our traditional pre-finals yoga session! Our meeting room is obviously too small to accommodate a full yoga class -- so we'll be meeting downstairs on the lawn. Specific location will be sent out asap.

Lastly, the month of May is Long Beach's Bicycle month! See the post below for more info.
