NatureBridge to Hold Third Annual Hike-A-Thon, May 3
April 24, 2014 -
Woodland Hills, CANatureBridge, the largest residential environmental education partner of the National Park Service, is holding their third annual Hike-A-Thon in the Santa Monica Mountains on May 3 from 8 to 11 a.m. Community members, teachers, parents and students will hike the 2.25 mile Inspiration Point Loop at Will Rogers State Historic Park in Pacific Palisades to raise critically-needed funds and draw attention to the need for environmental education in the Santa Monica Mountains and Channel Islands. The purpose of this annual event is two-fold: to raise funds and awareness of every childs need for environmental literacy.
The Santa Monica Mountains and Channel Islands are a truly unique ecosystem, said long-time NatureBridge Board member and community supporter Paul Culberg. They deserve to be protected and shared with the nearby urban population. Educating our young people is the only way we can hope to preserve this stunning community for future generations.
