Long Island Earth Day Activities
Earth Day activities offer you a chance to enjoy the natural beauty of Long Island, lend a hand in keeping our trails, parks, and beaches clean, and learn how we can be better caretakers of our local environment and protect the many animals, birds and fish that share our island with us.
- Cornell Cooperative Extension offers a calendar of events for various age groups during the week of April 17-22 at the Suffolk County Farm. These are fun learning events designed to encourage children of all ages to take care of the environment.
- Caleb Smith State Park has an Earth Day afternoon of crafts, games and educational activities planned for the afternoon of April 22.
- Sweetbriar Nature Center celebrates the return of our migratory birds to Long Island with a fun, educational bird-themed event on April 23 from 1-3 pm.
Smart families know that outdoor fun isn't just about planned activities. Why not start a family hiking tradition and explore a different section of the Long Island Greenbelt Trail every weekend? It might be a great way to interest your older children in the new outdoor activity called rucking.
Why not just gather your neighbors for an easy cleanup and outdoor potluck tailgate at one of our local beaches or parks?
Recover the lost tradition of gardening by joining up with one of the many community gardens that are thriving in Suffolk County.
No matter what you choose, get the clan out of the house and celebrate the fact that spring has finally arrived here on Long Island!
