What better way to celebrate the Earth than to make beautiful creations with the things it provides us with? Well, by getting rid of the trash we dumped on it – which is exactly what’s going to take place at the Stinson Beach Earth Day Celebration. Noticing a lack of Earth Day events in the area, environmental artist Zach Pine organized a volunteer event that integrated imagination and eco consciousness to bring the community together back in 2005. Participants can work alone or in groups and use sand, rocks, shells and natural objects from the beach to turn it into an evolving sculpture gallery. Before this gets underway, however, a clean up effort takes place. In past years, beach-goers stacked rock towers, planted a forest of driftwood “trees,” and created dragons, fairies and abstract designs.
