The City of Santa Monica Environmental Programs Division launched a new Web site to coincide with Earth Day Friday, April 22nd, and Earth Week, which started Monday, April 18th.

The Web site is designed to provide information about city services and programs, raise public awareness and encourage residents to communicate and become involved with local organ- izations and resources.

There is also information about outdoor activities and local field trips on the Web site.

The site also offers money-saving tips on preserving natural resources.

The Web site also features announcements for workshops, seminars, conferences, and other community events where environmental initiatives are discussed.

“The Web site is not only about environmental issues,” said Dean Kubani, Santa Monica sustainable city coordinator. “It is also about providing resources and opportunities for people to come together to improve their community both locally and globally.”

The Web site also links to the Santa Monica Public Library and is available at
