California Coastal National Monument part of Cabrillo College Watsonville Earth Day celebration
In spite of overcast skies, cold winds and smoke from the Apple Growers Cold Storage warehouse fire, Cabrillo College completed its Earth Week celebration on Earth Day on April 22, 2011, at its Watsonville campus on the eastside of the plaza in downtown Watsonville, California. The California Coastal National Monument was one of a half dozen organizations invited to participate in the Earth Day event that was scheduled to link with the City of Watsonville’s weekly farmers’ market that takes place every Friday afternoon in front of the Cabrillo College Watsonville Campus.
California Coastal National Monument Manager Rick Hanks and his wife, an instructor at Cabrillo College and a BLM volunteer, staffed the monument’s booth helping young and old alike make dozens and dozens of pelican headbands. Visitors to the booth were also treated to Coastal Monument brochures and pins and National Landscape Conservation System bandanas.
