THE ECOLOGY CENTER
The Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano is an educational center that offers hands-on activities that teach practical, environmental solutions at the household and community level. This year during the Hurley Pro, The Ecology Center is hosting a bike trip from the center to Trestles. The trek of a bike ride might leave you famished, but with a catered celebration at the end of the journey we think you’ll be just fine. Head to theecologycenter.org for more info on the ride.
The updated H2O booth, which debuted at the US Open of Surfing, will be taking its first road trip and heading south for the Hurley Pro. The new display hosts an improved pledging station, more water faucets, a sitting area and videos of water missions carried out this year streaming inside. Stop by, buy a canteen and in doing so, help fund programs that give clean drinking water to people in Indonesia, Haiti, the Amazon and Chile, to name a few.
MOBILE WATER SHED
Accompanying the H2O booth on the beach is The Ecology Center’s Mobile Water Shed, which is not only a good play on words, but also an interactive way for kids and adults to learn how the Southern California water shed works. Two learning stations inform visitors on ways we can become more water-conscious in our everyday lives and in our own backyards.
