Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. (March 24, 2014) – Terranea Resort, by Destination Hotels & Resorts, is inviting guests to go green during the resort’s annual Earth Week, April 21-25. In celebration of its fifth anniversary, the eco-friendly, oceanfront resort is offering five days of green events and activities, including a pelican release, ocean clean up by kayak, and a denim drive for guests and local residents alike to take part in and learn more about how they can support environmental conservation.
Set atop a bluff on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, the resort’s natural setting provides not only stunning views but also an opportunity for guests to commune with nature and spot wildlife such as dolphins, sea lions, and the endangered Palos Verdes Blue Butterfly.
Year-round conservation programs through Terranea’s Pointe Discovery’s activity center allow guests to participate in sustainable efforts by land and by sea. During the ocean clean up by kayak eco-excursion, guides navigate guests through the local coastline to help pick up debris and educate participants about the region’s history and marine environment. During Earth Week at Terranea, a donation from each kayak trip is made to organizations such as The Surfrider Foundation and Heal the Bay to further the cause to keep the ocean environment clean and safe. Guests can also take a walk on the wild side with a Pointe Discovery naturalist and learn about the Palos Verdes Peninsula’s unique local ecosystem and Terranea’s year-round conservation efforts.
Throughout the month of April, guests may take part in a Green Getaway enabling them to both enjoy and support the environment in a variety of ways. The Green Getaway Package includes overnight accommodations; a bottle of ONEHOPE Sauvignon Blanc wine that benefits Save Our Planet; complimentary use of a Lexus hybrid vehicle for a coastal drive to explore more surrounding nature; choice of an ocean clean up by kayak, eco-excursion, or guided coastal hike for two by Pointe Discovery; and a plantable seed ornament. Terranea will also plant a tree on the guest’s behalf. Package starts at $650 per night. When booking online guests should enter promotional code GREEN at www.Terranea.com.
