Earth Day Expo

Earth Day Expo

Bear Valley Electric hosted its 2017 Earth Day Expo on April 21, 2017 from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. From mock rescue missions to hands-on composting demonstrations, hundreds of Big Bear students and residents learned about conservation and environmental protection.

To celebrate the 47th Earth Day, BVES partnered with more than a dozen organizations to host the community expo and educate the public on the importance of protecting the planet's natural resources. Numerous regional agencies and non-profits took part, including the Sierra Club, Southwest Gas and Big Bear Disposal.

Attendees received free LED light bulbs and nightlights, which use 90% less energy than standard incandescent bulbs. Hot dogs fresh off the grill, snacks and waters were also free to all event attendees.
