Earth Day 2022 at Point Molate Beach Park
It was a rousing celebration of Earth Day at Point Molate Beach Park, music, dancing, art shows and nature programs all honoring the extraordinary beauty of our endangered native, Point Molate Beach Park and environs.
Through the generous donations of BridgemakerArts and West Contra Costa Sierra Club, Citizens for Eastshore Parks, WhollyH2O, and Blue Frontier this wonderful event came into being.
And our deep gratitude to those who entertained us and who gave spiritual connection and historical perspective to our experience:
Courtney Cummings and her daughter, Isabella Azizi of the Northern Cheyenne, Arikara and Muskogee Creek nations opened our day with an indigenous prayer.
Many, many thanks to those who donated time and money to make this possible. Visit their websites and learn more of the issues threatening the area and the health of the bay:
