Just because a region of California is beautiful doesn’t mean there are not air pollution challenges.
Ventura and Santa Barbara are great examples of this. Areas of the region are challenged by pesticides, near roadway pollution and even container traffic. The good news is that the region is committed to clean air in a big way, with Ventura County passing a resolution recognizing California Clean Air Day.
Between signing people up to take the Clean Air Day pledge at the Banana Festival to the unveiling of electric vehcile charging station at Cottage Hospital to air quality monitoring education at Hueneme Elementary to tree plantings at CSU Chanel Islands, Cal Lutheran and Moorpoark College, we are celebrating California Clean Air Day in a big way!
We want to thank the Port of Hueneme for their generous support of California Clean Air Day in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties.
