4/16/2018

Recreation, Learning, and Volunteer Activities Abound in Regional Parks

Celebrate Earth Day with the East Bay Regional Park District by taking a hike, learning something new, or helping the environment at scheduled Earth Day events. Events are available throughout the Earth Day weekend, April 21 – 22.

“Earth Day is a celebration of the natural environment we can enjoy at the Regional Parks, but also a reminder of our responsibility to take care of it,” said Park District Board President Dennis Waespi. “We encourage the community to enjoy an outdoor activity for Earth Day - whether it’s hiking in nature, learning about nature or helping restore nature.”

While most events are drop-in, registration is required for some activities. For more information about events, call 1-888-EBPARKS.
