Del Mar Foundation to hold Annual Earth Day Celebration

The Del Mar Foundation is hosting its annual Beach Clean-Up on Sunday, April 13, from 1-3 p.m. at the Powerhouse Community Center. The event, honoring Earth Day, features speaker Julianne Markow, executive director/CEO of The New Children’s Museum, who will be “talking trash” in keeping with the theme of the day. This event is open to volunteers of all ages – especially families with children – who are interested in learning about protecting the environment and in contributing to beach beautification.  Light refreshments will be served.

Julianne Markow joined The New Children’s Museum in 2011 with 20 years of professional experience, including as Chief Operating Officer at The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and Deputy Director, Operations and Finance at The San Diego Museum of Art.  Her presentation on trash will entertain and educate and is appropriate for all ages.

Following the beach clean up, participants are invited to join the Del Mar Lagoon Preservation Committee in celebrating its 40th Anniversary. Festivities begin at 4 p.m. with local groups sharing material on the lagoon and the San Dieguito River Park. This is followed at 5 p.m. by a Lagoon Restoration update by Steve Schroeter, Ph.D. of UCSB’s SONGS mitigation team and by featured speaker John Hildebrand, Ph.D., of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, who will discuss coastal dredging archeology. Light refreshments will be available.
