Earth Day Activities
March 30, 2002
If you own or can borrow a bike, you may wish to join Phil Maynard of the TRAC Steering Committee on April 20 for a scenic bike ride which will follow the Bay Trail from Central Avenue to the West County Earth Day Festival. This will be a great opportunity to see the existing Bay Trail and learn about new segments which will be completed soon. As explained below, you also have the option of joining the tour at the Rosie Memorial in Marina Bay or The Plunge in Point Richmond.

No matter how you transport yourself to the West County Earth Day Festival, be sure to take one of the limited bus tours of the landfill and learn about the scenic 1.7 mile Bay Trail segment which will be opening late this year on the south side of the landfill.
