The Del Mar Foundation held its annual Earth Day Celebration on April 21 at the Del Mar Powerhouse Community Center.

In cooperation with Keep Del Mar Clean, area residents gathered to enjoy refreshments followed by guest speaker, Nigella Hillgarth, executive director of the Birch Aquarium of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Participants then picked up gloves, trash bags and “claws” to help clean the trash from the beach, streets and alleyways around the Powerhouse.
