We’re pleased to be a major sponsor and partner of the Earth Day Marin 2014 Festival. The fourth annual festival is scheduled for Sunday, April 6, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Redwood High School, 395 Doherty Drive in Larkspur.
The free, family-friendly event will include music, hands-on activities, inspiring speakers, storytellers, puppet shows, authors, organic food, and more. The event is also a day of action on sustainability solutions addressing drought, climate change, and other environmental concerns.
In addition to sponsoring Earth Day Marin, we’ll be providing drinking water for the event—Mt. Tam’s finest!—as well as free stainless steel water bottles for the first 500 attendees who take action at the festival to reduce their water use.
We’ll have a variety of information and resources on hand to help you save water and money, and to learn more about where your water comes from. Highlights include:
- Free high-efficiency showerheads and faucet aerators
- One-on-one consultations with MMWD conservation specialists to help you calculate your home water use and find ways to save
- Opportunities to sign up for MMWD rebates, water use surveys for your home or business, Marin-Friendly Garden Walks with Marin Master Gardeners, and more
- Hands-on demonstrations of irrigation equipment
- How to read your water meter
- Water- and money-saving coupons from local retailers
- Free illustrated posters of MMWD’s watershed and water system for first 150 families who visit the festival’s “water village”
- Hands-on biodiversity activities about the plants and animals who call the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed home
- Opportunities to volunteer on the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed
- Behind-the-scenes look at how your water gets from “Tam to tap”
- Demonstrations of the high-tech acoustic equipment MMWD’s leak detectives use to locate leaks in the district’s 900 miles of pipeline
- Screening of “The Invisible Peak,” Gary Yost’s new documentary about the hidden Cold War history of Mt. Tam’s West Peak and efforts to restore it
