Culver City: Join the Global Frackdown Oct. 19

Global Frackdown

California is being fracked. And we may actually be on the verge of a fracking boom -- this dangerous oil and gas extraction technique has the potential to spread into neighborhoods, public lands and even near national parks across the state. Fracking spells bad news for our climate and environment and pushes the looming climate crisis ever closer.

It's time to send a message to Governor Jerry Brown: Ban fracking statewide.
Stand with the Center for Biological Diversity and our allies on Saturday, Oct. 19 for the second annual Global Frackdown and help us do just that.

Join us for the Global Frackdown's Bike and Walk for a Fracking Free Los Angeles on Saturday, Oct. 19. Kick off the events at a family-friendly rally in Culver City with exciting speakers and local food vendors. Then take part in the 5- to 7-mile bike ride or a shorter walk to call attention to the largest urban oil field in the nation.

The bike ride will start at Veterans Memorial Park and make its way to the Inglewood Oil Field via Ballona Creek and West Los Angeles College before traveling back again to Veterans Park. If you don't have a bike, you can join the walking brigade taking a shorter route through Culver City.

This is a family-friendly event. A helmet is mandatory if you plan to ride your bike with us, and make sure to bring water and sunscreen.
