Happy Earth Day Boston!
Earth Day serves as a day to reflect on the impact that climate change and pollution have on Mother Nature and all of us earthlings. It’s important to remind ourselves of the negative consequences our behaviors can have on the environment and to take action to ensure we’re taking care of our planet. We’ve put together a list of sixs awesome events taking place around Boston this coming Thursday, April 22, so you can celebrate Mother Nature and show love and appreciation for our precious environment and ecosystems.
Of course, this year safety guidelines and protocols will be strictly observed during in-person events, so make sure to keep your distance and bring along your mask!
