Earth Day 2022 Events in NYC: Hike, Recycle, and More

NEW YORK (PIX11) – People in the Tri-State area celebrate Earth Day on Friday, and there are plenty of opportunities to join in the fun.

Whether you want to take a hike, recycle old electronics, or clean up your neighborhood, here are some ways to celebrate Earth Day 2022.

Teach your kids about Earth Day in action at PS 194 on 143rd Street in Harlem. Listen to music, grab something to eat, access free health resources, and create Earth Day-themed artwork. The event was organized by the Children’s Village and the Partnership. Kids can even take part in a talent show. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday.

Learn how to assess the health of trees in your neighborhood at the “Love Your Street Tree Day” event on Columbus Avenue at 11 a.m. The event was organized by the city’s parks department. They’ll teach you everything you need to become an expert on city trees, and you can also do planting to make the block look better. The group gathers at City Council member Gale Brewer’s office.

We all know how toxic it is to have electronics thrown in the trash, but what about expired or broken items? Globetops in Brooklyn has you covered. Bring your old electronics to Industry City Friday for a chance to win gift cards from some of the best sellers out there. Glopetops refurbishes electronics and then puts them in the hands of students, artists and activists working for gender equality and social justice. The event takes place from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. in courtyard 1.

And presto, go for a hike… in one of New York’s emblematic parks! Get outside and enjoy the spring weather in lush green Inwood Park. There is an Earth Day hiking event that kicks off at 1 p.m. The hike is kid-friendly, which means people of all ages can enjoy it. The group will meet at Payson and Seaman Avenues.
