What is Capital Region Earth Day?

As a partner of EarthDay.org, Capital Region Earth Day is a community of passionate leaders encouraging businesses, schools and local groups within the Capital Region to host Earth Day events and collaborate on a large cultural event. Combining efforts to create a collective act of celebratory activism empowers our community to work better together to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement throughout the remainder of the year.

In 2022, Earth Day is on Friday, April 22. To accommodate the schedules of our community groups, the Capital Region Earth Day website focuses on actions planned from April 15th through May 1st. This year the focus is on the following Capital Region counties: Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady.

When April arrives, you can view the depth of action on www.CapitalRegionEarthDay.com. Until then, you are invited to join a team of inclusive leaders as we work together to understand ourselves, one another and our environment for the purpose of enriching and serving humanity.
