Lecture on sustainability

What sustainable practices did Native populations use in the Amador-Livermore Valley hundreds of years ago? What steps can we take to ensure a healthier region today and into the future?

The Museum On Main Street's Ed Kinney Lecture Series presents "Sustainability: Then and Now" in recognition of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day at 7 p.m., Thursday, April 22, at Lynnewood United Methodist Church, 4444 Black Ave., Pleasanton. The lecture is sponsored by Jack Harrington.

Alviso Adobe Community Park Naturalist Eric Nichols will talk about native and historic land use, including hunting game, gathering food, and creating shelter. Maria Lara, from the office of Pleasanton's city manager, will discuss local sustainability programs including Solar Cities, a program focused on educating residential consumers about solar energy in the cities of Pleasanton, Livermore and Dublin; the curbside recycling program; and more.

Tickets, at the door, cost $5 members and seniors, $10 non-members, and $3 students and teachers with ID. No reservations necessary. For information call the museum at 462-2766.
