Saturday: Earth Day celebration at Bedwell Bayfront Park


The city of Menlo Park will host an Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Bedwell Bayfront Park.

This is the first time the city will host an Earth Day event "in a while," said Clay Curtin, assistant to the city manager.

The event will feature an environmental education performance by EarthCapades, a Pacifica-based performance group that brands itself as "Environmental Vaudeville Juggling Science Performers." They plan to bring a stilt walker, according to Mr. Curtin.

There will be a "Green Expo" with booths staffed by representatives of city departments and local environmental groups who will provide information about their work.

Friends of Bedwell Bayfront Park is expected to lead a birdwatching tour and a local beekeeper is scheduled to be there, too, Mr. Curtin said. Face painting and a raffle are planned.

For food, Menlo Park-based Polynesian food truck Umu will be serving from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., he said.

During the event, a volunteer service project hosted by Grassroots Ecology, a local environmental stewardship program, will work on a mulching project at the park.

Register to volunteer on Eventbrite.

Bedwell Bayfront Park is located at 1600 Marsh Road in Menlo Park, past Bayfront Expressway.
