Environmental Trifecta!

If you have any sort of environmental curiosity and are fixin for something to do, Thursday, November 10 leaves you with many options.

In no particular order (except for the fact that yours truly is speaking at the BSRA meeting, therefore I think that's the hippest place to be, unless you are a heckler, then see options 2 and 3 below):
  1. Both sides of the Second + PCH development will be speaking at the Belmont Shore Residents Association (BSRA) meeting at 6 p.m. at the Bayshore Library (195 Bayshore Ave.). Panelists are developer, David Malmuth, and local activist/Shore resident, Heather Altman (that's me!).
  2. The first public meeting (of six) to discuss the conceptual restoration plan of the Los Cerritos Wetlands will be held at the Seal Beach Senior Center (707 Electric Ave.) from 6:30 - 8:00. Representatives from the Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority, Moffit & Nichol, and their subcontractors will be on hand to discuss the process moving forward and to get public feedback. For more information see
  3. Mike Evans, founder of the Tree of Life Nursery and native plant guru, will be speaking at the Groundwater Treatment Plant (2950 Redondo....corner of Redondo and Spring) beginning at 6:30. Evans' presentation to discuss the benefits of native plants is sponsored by Greater Long Beach and the Long Beach Water Department. For more information see
