Earth Day in San Diego is always a big deal— we should all be concerned with our environment and carbon footprint, but when you live in a city surrounded by such natural beauty the imperative of “being green” becomes all the more apparent. On Sunday, April 21st, America’s Finest City officially celebrates its environmentalism with the 24th annual Earth Fair in Balboa Park! We’ll be there from 10am ’til 5pm with Class 1 streetcar #138. Our board president Christian Chaffee will be making a presentation on our proposal to restore these historic streetcars to the rail at around 11 am and we will be screening our short documentary-style video San Diego’s Lost Treasure: The Historic Class 1 Streetcars, 100 Years Later throughout the day.
We hope you’ll come down to get a look at the past and potential future of San Diego’s energy efficient public transportation. Plus, there will be a lot of other great exhibitors to check out, so be sure to come down, have fun, and learn how we can all do our part to make our world a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable place.
