4 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day
April 21, 2020
Happy Earth Day! This year, people all around the world are celebrating a milestone—the 50th anniversary of this international day of action for our environment. While we cannot gather together, our environmental educators have organized a celebration with fun activities and programs that will bring the wonders of nature in Prospect Park to life no matter where you are.
- Tune in at 11 am for The Trees of Prospect Park. Learn about Brooklyn’s last remaining forest with Turnstile Tours and Prospect Park Alliance forest ecologist Howard Goldstein in this live, virtual program.
- Enjoy nature games and activities that bring the Earth Day celebration to you! Make your own paper, learn how to grow a grocery garden, compete in Backyard Bird Bingo, and much more.
- Be a steward of Prospect Park and our community. If you visit the park this Earth Week, take our nature pledge to protect our natural areas and our community. And when you go out, please wear a face covering and practice social distancing. Help our essential workers by carrying out your litter.
Finally, this Earth Day, sustain the park that sustains you: right now your gift will go twice as far to sustain our community’s essential green space. We’re excited to announce that a pair of generous Prospect Park Alliance supporters have made a pledge: they will match all donations up to $20,000, dollar-for-dollar. Now is the perfect time to make your gift to support the park you love—when it will go twice as far and do twice as much to preserve this essential natural oasis.
Prospect Park is home to Brooklyn’s last remaining forest, only lake and hundreds of species of plants and animals. Give now in honor of Earth Day—and know that your donation will be put to work immediately to sustain the park you love.
And from all of us here at Prospect Park Alliance, happy Earth Day!
