This year’s Tree Hugger’s Ball, scheduled for Saturday, June 12th, in Blackstar Canyon (Silverado), CA, is a chance to experience the beautiful canyon areas we are striving to preserve while helping to educate the community about our vanishing wild spaces, and our vital part as stewards of the earth. Our ‘Go Green in the OC!’ event will feature exhibitors of eco-friendly products and transportation, well known environmental speakers, live Musicians and dancing. Guest speakers in the past have included Goldman Award winner Julia Bonds of the Coal River Mountain Watch who has successfully fought mountain top removal of coal; Flossie Horgan, of the Bolsa Chica Wetlands Project, Sierra Club activist Brittany McKee who played a key role in the ‘Save Trestles’ project; sustainability expert Chris Prelitz, and Earth Resource Foundation’s ‘Zero Waste’ advocate Stephanie Barger.
