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. This year, the 11th annual Create-With-Nature Earth Day celebration takes place April 23 at Stinson Beach. Participants work alone or in groups to turn the beach into an evolving sculpture gallery. Event starts with beach cleanup.
