East Bay Regional Parks Celebrate Earth Day

SHARE

Oakland, CA – Every day is Earth Day in the East Bay Regional Park District, but it’s always more special during the month of April when the Park District celebrates at multiple Earth Day events. Find your own way to celebrate the Earth: explore a new park, hike in nature, learn something new, or help the environment at an Earth Day restoration project. Events are scheduled throughout the month of April.

According to the global nonprofit “Earth Day Network”, the 2019 theme for Earth Day is to protect threatened and endangered species, a theme that is shared in the Park District’s mission. Earth Day is both a celebration of the natural environment we enjoy in the Regional Parks, and a reminder of our responsibility to take care of it. The Park District encourages residents to enjoy outdoor activities on Earth Day at one or more of the East Bay Regional Park District events and activities below.
