Earth Day New York City 2018

Event Listings can be found below

On this New Yorkled Magazine page are featured Earth Day events for all to join in on and help make this a better world and to better our environment. Heck, it’s also a good way for us to instill in our kids the responsibility they have in caring for our planet.Earth-Day-Seal

Yup! It’s that time of year again. When we all gather in many ways to show our support, thoughts and care for Mother Nature. Unfortunately the world seems to need this Tender Loving Care more now than ever in human history it seems. Things almost feel as if they’re throttling out of control what with newspapers, television and all other sorts of media mentioning how bad things are with the environment.

It’s most certainly our time and possibly last chance to make known to the powers that be how bad things are. How imperative the need is to begin fixing things and how we need to spread the word for the sake of enlightening others and educating folks. It’s our world and its the world which our children will inherit.
Our future generations deserve a better world!

Earth Day is on Saturday, April  22, 2018 with events being scheduled during the preceding week and beyond. You can look below to see what’s going on in our boroughs and how you too can partake in these free activities and such. Further Down on the page is a listing of events taking place in our parks.
