Celebrate Earth Day with the Park District

Volunteer at Earth Day Events on April 20

April 18, 2024

Every day is Earth Day in the Regional Parks! It’s a day that is close to the Park District’s heart and mission to preserve and protect our natural resources. Earth Day also provides visitors with an opportunity to give back to the parks they love. In honor of Earth Day and to celebrate our 90th Anniversary year, consider registering or dropping in at an Earth Day volunteer event on April 20, or simply enjoy time in a Regional Park near you.
