As Washington backtracks on its commitment to the health of the planet, local green initiatives are becoming more important. This Earth Day is a reminder that what we do locally makes a difference — and that it sends a message beyond our community.
Nyack’s 5th annual Earth Day celebration will be held on Sat April 22 from 12n-5p at the Main Street Gazebo at Cedar Street. The Nyack Chamber of Commerce hopes this event will raise awareness and encourage local action to maintain a healthy and sustainable community.
Stop by to see Earth-friendly demonstrations about recycling, gardening and composting. Vendors and artisans will offer environmentally friendly and sustainable products and services. Kids’ activities include arts and crafts and a pop-up playground. And there will be live music, too.
