California Clean Air Action Day

The Port of Long Beach and the City of Long Beach will celebrate California Clean Air Day on Oct. 2, a day designated by the Coalition for Clean Air as a statewide pledge for a greener California. Efforts toward that pledge include incorporating clean air strategies such as planting trees, driving cleaner vehicles and recycling.

The lunchtime event will feature food, music, games, booths, and displays of zero-emissions city vehicles as well as two new zero-emissions hydrogen and battery-electric yard hostlers that handle cargo at the port.

The event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Civic Center Plaza, 411 W. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, Calif.
