Background

Glendale strives to provide meaningful services and programs to encourage its residents and visitors to be aware and sensitive to the environment. Examples include the city's curb-side recycling program; environmental services that provide outreach on low-water use and energy conservation techniques; maintaining water quality and monitoring air quality; encouraging the use of alternative modes of transportation; active and vibrant bicycle path and trails; and enhancements to city parks such as solar lighting and low-water use landscaping.

In celebration of these services, a series of public events have been planned to occur in Glendale throughout the months of March and April 2015.
