Assemblymember Tasha BoernerHappy Earth Day! We all are fortunate to live near the San Diego County coast. It is one of the most beautiful regions in the state, with stunning beaches and unique biodiversity.

As a mom, I am committed to preserving our planet for our kids. Earth Day reminds us to practice living sustainably and make conscious decisions to protect the Earth each and every day.

This weekend, I am taking the opportunity to volunteer for Earth Day by participating in a beach cleanup. Are you participating in any activities on Earth Day? Feel free to tag me on social media! I would love to show everyone in the community what you have been up to!
