Mammoth Environmental Festival
The Outdoors in Mammoth Environmental Festival takes place next week, August 5 & 6, 2008, in Mammoth, California. This year's theme, Summit to the Sea, highlights the connection between the mountains and the ocean, and everything in-between. The festival will combine hands-on activities with short field trips, including watching environmental films under the stars.
Jean-Michael Cousteau will speak at several events during the festival, including the closing dinner. Representatives from the Paiute Indian community will attend to talk about issues of sustainable living, as well as lead hikes to the area's water source and hot springs to talk about geothermal energy.
All hiking and movie events are free, but the meetings with Cousteau are part of a larger package, of which proceeds will benefit the Mammoth Community Foundation. Getting OutdoorsHow To Green Your Outdoor SportsForum Topics: Earth EventsTop Ten Least Walkable US CitiesWhat Is Killing Camping?
