Movie Night - It's FREE

The series will kick-off on THIS EVENING, at 6:30 pm with a screening of Robert Stone's environmental classic, Pandora's Promise, followed by a Q&A with Robert Stone and several individuals involved in the making of the movie.

FREE Earth Fair on Sunday!

Open to the Public and it is FREE.

More than 30 exhibitors will be at Holbrook-Palmer Park from 1p-5p, including students competing in the Atherton 2020 Student Challenge showcasing their Environmental Issue presentations in true Science Fair fashion!

Attendees can further extend their knowledge about ways to live more sustainably by visiting with several dozen area businesses, non-profit organizations, agencies and artists, who will be there to discuss everything from financing and installing solar panels on homes to the state of clean nuclear power in California.

Attendees will be able to learn about the Net Zero Energy features of Atherton’s proposed Civic Center, test-drive an electric vehicle with TESLA, learn how to keep chickens, collect clean mulch for their gardens, and how to recycle those pesky toxic items - you will even be able to drop off small, hazardous waste items (batteries and bulbs).

There will also be plenty of activities for the children including a bouncy house, popcorn machine, balloon making and face painting!
