  • Support the work of the national event held virtually on Wednesday, April 22nd – Friday, April 24th. Sign up here to get more information.

Here is how you can help:

  • Post recent pictures of nature on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #earthday2020boston and support the national groups with the hashtags #earthrise and #strikewithus. In your post, tag 5 other friends and challenge them to do the same thing. Ask them to join our Facebook page or go to our website for further actions. We want to enjoy nature “together at home” and send messages about the healing power of nature. See my example below and on our Facebook page. 
  • Continue to follow CDC guidelines about social distancing and staying home so we can “flatten the curve” and give our health care workers time to respond.
