10th Annual People’s Earth Day EcoCenter Grand Opening & Sunday Streets

2:04 PM PDT on April 1, 2010

"Join Bayview Hunters Point to celebrate the 10th Annual People’s Earth Day and the Grand Opening of the EcoCenter at Heron’s Head Park, the first and only environmental justice education center in the Bay Area.

The EcoCenter is San Francisco’s first “off-grid” building, modeling solar power and alternative wastewater technologies. Nearly every feature of this 1,500-square foot facility will be used to educate the public about renewable energy, pollution and greenhouse gas reduction, wastewater treatment, “green” building materials, and the green economy.

Presented by Literacy for Environmental Justice, this event is free to the public and will include habitat restoration, live music, youth talent, bird & wetland tours, sustainability fair, food, dance, Eco Center Tours, Ohlone blessing and Heron sculpture unveiling."
