With events on Earth Day (Friday, April 22) and throughout the week, New York City celebrates sustainability and ways to live in harmony with the planet. Below we’ve listed some of the events where you can honor our planet; Union Square is the usual primary host of Earth Day events, but there are happenings both big and small across the City.
- April 21: Earth Day Initiative’s return to in-person Earth Day activities takes place in Union Square Park. Come to talk to science-forward and environmentally conscious exhibitors, meet fellow activists, watch performances and hear speakers in this daylong event.
- April 22: Queens County Farm Museum holds Bee-a-Pollinator Service Day—a time to volunteer, play a few games and hear from the farm’s beekeeper.
- April 23: Bring the family to Rockefeller Park, in Battery Park City, for a zero-waste art project and traditional Japanese drumming.
- April 24: Volunteer to restore woodlands and salt marsh habitats at Urban Farm on Randall’s Island ; you can also just bring the kids to explore the garden there.
