The Annual Earth Day Celebration and Poster Contest Award ceremony that was held on Saturday, April 30, 2022 at Tarzana Park was a wonderful success and was well attended by many from the local community. Highlights included live music by School of Rock, food trucks and family entertainment, with many opportunities to learn about living green with organizations such as California Native Plant Society, Santa Monica Mountains Fund, HoneyLove Urban Beekeepers, LADWP hydration station, and Los Angeles Sanitation featured information on recycling, composting and stormwater capture. In addition, L.A. Conservation Corps. gave away more than 150 California Native Trees. Children had fun creating art projects, painting flower pots, planting native California plants, and visiting animals at the Critter Squad station, as well as playing in the inflatable jumpers.
More than 800 colorful Earth Day Posters were on display by local school children that participated in the Annual Earth Day Poster Contest. During the Poster Contest Award ceremony, the schools and students were congratulated, and the schools were presented with $250 art grants and certificates from local officials. In addition, the three students who won the best-of-show poster contest category were awarded brand new bikes that were generously donated by Trek Bicycles Woodland Hills. The four schools that participated in the Poster Contest included: Wilbur Charter for Enriched Studies, Nestle Avenue Charter, Portola Charter Middle School, and Tarzana Elementary School. This year’s Poster Contest theme Go Wild, Create Habitat with California Native Plants! was chosen to educate students about the importance of planting native California plants to support sustainability and provide habitat for local wildlife.

New water conservation rules took effect for LADWP customers on June 1 limiting outdoor watering days to two days per week. Customers with street addresses ending in odd numbers may water on Mondays and Fridays and customers with even-numbered street addresses may water on Thursdays and Sundays, before 9 a.m. or after 4 p.m.
Now is the time to take advantage of the water- and money-saving rebates and programs we have available to both residential and commercial customers. The less water we use now, the more we have for when we need it most.
We've got this, L.A.!
If you have an innovative idea for a project that can help reduce emissions in your community, apply for a Community Emission Reduction Grant to bring that project to life. Apply by July 15, 2022.
As we transition to a clean energy future, LADWP is investing $20 million in grants for local projects that help reduce emissions in the L.A. communities hardest hit by pollution sources.
Beginning spring of 2022 the LADWP will be replacing portions of the water mains along various streets in Tarzana. The project will proceed in four phases over a period of 14 months. Come to the March 22, 2022 virtual Tarzana Neighborhood Council meeting to learn more about this project. The link to our meeting is https://zoom.us/j/95295582252
