Huntington Beach Wetlands Conservancy

In 1985 a small group of concerned citizens set off on a mission to protect the last remaining wetlands in Huntington Beach, some 147 acres out of what used to be over 3,000 다운로드.

Today, their dream is coming true as the Huntington Beach Wetland Conservancy owns and has restored a majority of the land, some 100 acres from the Santa Ana River to the AES Power Plant 다운로드.

The remaining pieces are a 44-acre parcel located between Newland and Beach Blvd, and a tiny triangle, some 7/10 an acre, sandwiched between the Huntington Waterfront Hilton and a new residential neighborhood 다운로드. These, too, will soon be owned by the Conservancy 다운로드.

There is the recycling rate that was best in the State at 71% up from 45% in 1995 다운로드. The local waste company, Rainbow Recycling, will be at the Expo.

If you’ve been down to City Hall or Central Library then you’ve seen the solar panels in the parking lot 주찬양 다운로드. These panels are expected to turn 40% of building energy use to solar. Several solar companies will be at the event.

Finally, there is the contentious plastic bag ban on all single use bags 리프그린. The city council is largely split on this issue and so are the residents, but it is likely to pass 다운로드.

That is not to say that we don’t have our issues. In a recent post, I explored the surfboard industry and found out that surfboards are dirty 다운로드. I mean super toxic and not at all recyclable; something Surf City can’t ignore.
