Shasta Living Street at The Whole Earth and Watershed Festival this Saturday

Saturday, April 23 from 10AM to 3PM, come enjoy this year’s Festival to learn ways to live a healthier lifestyle, save money and energy, protect and restore natural resources and discover how the work of many local groups make our region’s communities better places to live. We are especially excited about our partnerships this year: with RABA offering a FREE RIDE DAY, with Turtle Bay Exploration Park offering admission to the museum for $5.00, and with SHASTA LIVING STREETS offering the north state its first “Open Streets” event with fun and festivities along Park Marina Drive. It will be a great day to try out a RABA bus, check out the museum, and ride your bike, carpool, walk, or run to the 2011 Whole Earth and Watershed Festival and join the celebration of EARTH DAY (April 22nd) and WATERSHED AWARENESS MONTH (May)! It’s sure to be an experience you and your family, friends, and neighbors will not want to miss!
