Belmont Mural

Students at Belmont High School in Los Angeles, CA, work diligently on a large mural collage designed collectively by students. The student created this in celebration of Earth Day 2009, in conjunction with the installation of solar panels, the purchasing of green cleaning products, the planting of a school garden, and more. These projects were facilitated by Earth Day Network. The Los Angeles Unified School District was formerly situated on a site with five oil wells and a pumping plant, and the implementation of these projects was seen as a move towards environmental justice for the area.
