The Citizens Environmental Council of Burlingame (CEC) invites you to celebrate Earth Day by attending two free programs in April. On Thursday, April 18, at “How Climate Change Will Cost You Money,” experts will explain how climate change could negatively affect your property, your insurance rates, your health and your quality of life – and what you can do about it. This program will be held in the Lane Room at the Burlingame Public Library from 7 to 8:30 p.m. It is cosponsored by the San Mateo Chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby.
On Saturday, April 20, at “Harvesting Rainwater and Building a Rain Garden,” landscape architect Ira Johnson will teach you how to harvest rainwater in your garden, use native plants to soak up the rain, and assemble and maintain an inexpensive rainwater system. This hands-on workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Burlingame Rain Garden on Donnelly Avenue near Primrose Road. It is funded by the Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency. Please register for this free workshop at http://bawsca.org/classes.
