Celebrate Earth Festival

Posted by Amy On Saturday, April 24, 2010
Mahaney Regional Park in Roseville was the setting for the annual "Celebrate Earth Festival" on Saturday, April 17, 2010. The event was just one in a week-long menu of earth-friendly activities hosted by The Roseville Utility Exploration Center that directs both a hands-on learning expo and a variety of eco-wise classes for the public at the Mahaney Park site.

The festival focused on empowering our citizens to nurture and conserve the earth and its resources in sustainable ways. A variety of exhibits demonstrated wise energy and water use, eating locally-grown food, "green" travel and recycling.

This was Heifer's second year at the event that had an expected attendance of 3,000 people. Sacramento-area volunteers challenged children, youth and adults with interactive questions on economics, nutrition and food production, animal agriculture and global citizenship, while educating about Heifer's mission to help hungry families feed themselves and care for the earth. As always, it was a great day to be a Heifer volunteer, sharing our passion with friendly, caring people in a beautiful setting.

Zoo Fest, 2010

Posted by Amy On Sunday, April 04, 2010


On April 3, The Sacramento Heifer volunteer group participated in the annual Zoo Fest at the Sacramento Zoo. Six volunteers spent the day giving out information about Heifer's work. The featured animal was bees and many children stopped at our booth to make bee wrist bands and lollipop flowers. In spite of cool weather, there were many visitors to the zoo and we felt we had a very successful day.
