Celebrate the Earth at a Chicago Park This Weekend

April 16, 2010

April 22 marks Earth Day, and it’s a good time to give back to your environment because your planet needs you.

Please watch for upcoming articles about ways to make your home more green. This weekend, there are several Earth Day events at Chicago parks that can give you an opportunity to get more hands-on with your natural surroundings.

These events, each taking place on Saturday, April 17, are free and will give you an opportunity to help improve our nature areas. There should be gloves to use, but bring a pair of your own if you have them. There will also be festivals, environmental education, nature walks and craft projects.

Check out the different parks and times, pick one that works for you, have fun while doing good, and make a difference for Earth Day!
