California Coastal National Monument participates in Cabrillo Marine Aquarium’s Earth Day Program

Pelican headbands and California Coastal National Monument brochures were the popular items at BLM’s CaliforniaCoastal National Monument table during the Earth Day Program at City of Los Angeles’ Cabrillo Marine Aquarium in San Pedro, California,  on April 18, 2009.  On a sunny southern California Saturday, about 1,000 people of all ages attended the day-long event.  More than three dozen organizations and governmental agencies participated with booths and activities.  At the BLM booth, dozens of kids colored, cut and assembled pelican headbands while their parents discussed the California Coastal National Monument with Monument Manager Rick Hanks and Monuments Interpretative Specialist Tracy Albrecht of BLM-California's Palm Springs/South Coast Field Office.
