We’re joining nearly a thousand organizations in 192 countries across the globe to celebrate Earth Day 2021! This year’s theme is “Together, we will restore our earth.”
The theme is based on a concept that rejects the idea that our only options to save the planet are to mitigate or adapt to the impacts of climate change and other environmental damage.
Instead, the Earth Day Network is helping to inspire scientists, governments, non-government agencies and businesses to look at natural processes and emerging green technology to restore the earth’s ecosystems and forests, conserve and rebuild soils, improve farming practices, restore wildlife populations and rid the world’s oceans of plastics.
What natural processes are being explored in County Parks?
Mid-April we will be posting videos that demonstrate these practices.
We will be hosting three tree plantings at parks across San Diego in late April – stay tuned for details!
Exercise your green thumb while growing healthy produce and saving money at Sweetwater Community Garden. Personal garden plots are available in various sizes; click here to view the official flyer.
We’ve also brought back some DIY activities for the kids and teens, which can be downloaded and enjoyed at any time:
We hope you will tune into, volunteer at, and download this year’s Earth Day activities.
