Public “Tree Hugging and Tree Hugger Hugging Event” to Take Place March 18 in Santa Monica Palisades Park

“Hug a Tree AND a Tree Hugger” will be the theme of an expanded March 18 through March 20 Spring Equinox 2011 “Tree Hugging Weekend” that is being held to show appreciation and gratitude for our life-giving trees, as well as for the many “tree huggers” who are often trivialized and demeaned for their tree- loving and environmentally friendly endeavors.

A public “Tree Hugging and Tree Hugger Hugging Event” will kickoff the weekend on Friday, March 18, 2011 from 6:00PM until 7:00PM in the Santa Monica Palisades Park at the Children’s Tree of Life located at Ocean Avenue and Colorado Avenue, just north of the gateway to the Santa Monica Pier.

The event is being organized by longtime Santa Monica peace and environmental activists Jerry Rubin and his wife Marissa Rubin.

Event co-organizer Jerry Rubin says, “I’m a tree hugger and proud of it. It’s time to bring tree hugging back by popular demand. The Spring Equinox weekend is a great time to honor trees and Mother Nature”.

Event co-organizer Marissa Rubin says, “Everyone is invited to join us at the kickoff public event, but anyone can give a nice hug to some trees- and some tree huggers- anywhere and everywhere during this special weekend. And, like Earth Day, this is something that can always be celebrated any day and everyday”.
