Celebrate Earth Day with the Park District

Earth Day Opportunities Include Activities, Hikes, and Volunteer Clean-up Events

Earth Day is close to the Park District’s heart and mission to preserve and protect natural resources. Launched on April 22, 1970 as an environmental teach-in, Earth Day is now a global movement to protect the Earth and the environment. 

“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,” said General Manager Sabrina Landreth. “There are many ways to celebrate Earth Day with the Park District, including joining a naturalist-led program, taking a hike or ride in nature, or volunteering to clean up parks.” 

Earth Day Volunteer Clean-up Events 

Park, shoreline, and beach clean-up events are planned at multiple locations throughout the Park District, as well as planting projects and spreading mulch (Lake Chabot). 

Clean-up locations include:
Point Pinole
Hayward Shoreline
Tidewater Boating Center
Martin Luther King Jr. Shoreline
Crown Beach
Lake Chabot
