Local school kids love Las Olas…
Lunch on the Lawn
Hungry school kids enjoying Las Olas fare after finishing a guided nature hike through the San Elijo Lagoon sponsored in association with the Nature Collective and director, Doug Gibson.
Las Olas tries hard to be an environmentally conscientious operation, not easily done but the right thing to do. We are Surfrider Foundation sanctioned “ocean friendly” restaurants and long time supporter of the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy. Check out some of our focus areas to walk the green walk:
These efforts are not always the easiest or cheapest way but we know these are positive efforts that make a difference. Thank you for your continued support!
Even before the incorporation of Encinitas in the 80’s, Las Olas had been a strong advocate for environmental and city developmental issues. A strong supporter of their neighbor the Nature Collective, the sand replenishment programs, the Rob Machado Surf Classic, The Boys and Girls Club, The YMCA, the local LifeGuard fundraisers, the Swami’s surf club, and nearly every school from Oceanside to Chula Vista.
“We particularly enjoy hosting Lunch on the Lawn for hungry school kids finishing guided nature hikes through the Lagoon (see picture), and the well received “Teacher of the Month” award program that started back in the mid 90’s so that each month in over 35 North County schools a deserving teacher was awarded a gift certificate to use at a Las Olas. That’s over 300 teachers each year and over 4,000 teachers to date! We have received many thanks from our local teachers over the years and Las Olas continues to support many of these programs today. Please join Las Olas for our yearly community Beach Clean Up on July 5th in Cardiff and Carlsbad.
