Philadelphia Earth Day Guide

Posted by The Philadelphia Citizen on April 16, 2024

Earth Day began in 1970 with a demonstration. Today, more than 1 billion people celebrate by working together and apart to amplify what’s good for the earth — and to mitigate what’s bad. Here in Philly, that means planting and growing native plants and trees, cleaning up streams and parks, learning new conservation practices, teaching kids to do the same — and, on occasion, having a drink or two. Philadelphia’s Earth Day stretches from more than a week before the holiday — officially April 22, a Monday — into the week after.

Here is the Philadelphia Citizen guide to events that celebrate and restore the Philadelphia part of the planet on and around Earth Day, plus things you can do any old day to make our city’s environment healthier.
