The City of Monterey Park Environmental Commission, in partnership with the Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library and the City of Monterey Park Department of Recreation and Community Services, invites all residents to celebrate Earth Day with a fun, family-friendly workshop that will highlight the work being done by the Asian Pacific Islander Forward Movement (APIFM) Nature for All Coalition. The Nature for All Coalition is dedicated to protecting public lands, equitably creating more natural spaces and connecting people to the outdoors. These issues are critical not only on Earth Day but year round, and the COVID-19 pandemic has further highlighted the need for public lands and environmental preservation as we spend more time outdoors with friends and family.
Starting April 12, residents are invited to pick up a family activity book and a seed packet from the Bruggemeyer Library to explore and participate in outdoor and nature-themed activities. On April 19, at 3:00 p.m., on Zoom, join Jean Park from APIFM who will provide a presentation to showcase the current legislative efforts to protect and provide access to the San Gabriel Mountains.
