2016 Earth Day Activities in Chicago IL
There are many great holidays that we get to celebrate every single year, but none of them have as significant of an impact as Earth Day. This is the one day each year when we can all collectively come together to positively impact our environment. If you are looking for some fun, informational, and family friendly 2016 Earth Day activities in Chicago IL, you have come to the right place!
Humboldt Park Earth Day 2016 Parks and Preserves Clean Up
One of the best things that you can do on Earth Day is help to clean up some of the garbage that has collected in our parks this past year. The Humboldt Park Earth Day Clean-Up gives you a chance to volunteer to do just that with plenty of other volunteers! You don’t have to worry about bringing any supplies either, those will be provided for you. Check out the event’s page for additional information on how to sign up.
If cleaning a park isn’t for you, and you want to do something a little bit more relaxing, why not take in a Earth Day flick? The Adler Planetarium will be showing a free screening of “Growing Cities” which won an award at the One Earth Festival. Afterwards, gaze your eyes toward the stars in the Adler’s Doane Observatory. Ticket information can be found here.
Earth Day Walk at Chicago Botanic Garden
For those of you who want to see some true beauty, we highly encourage you check out the Earth Day Walk at the Chicago Botanic Garden. You will receive a guided tour through McDonald Woods, and the best part of all, it’s completely free! Check out the Chicago Botanic Garden’s website for more info.
Clean & Green 2016
Loyola University will be teaming up with several prominent individuals in the area once again this year to bring us Clean & Green 2016. This is an event for students and community members. Everyone will be working together to clean up the 48th and 49th Wards. More information can be found on Loyola University’s website.
Purchase a Green Vehicle!
If you really want to help the environment, you will do away with your old, inefficient clunker and get behind the wheel of a new, environmentally friendly vehicle. Here at Loeber Motors, we have a wide selection of Smart cars to choose from. These vehicles are perfect for city driving here in Chicago, and they achieve 30+ mpg in the city and on the highway.
We hope that you will get out and enjoy some of these 2016 Earth Day activities in Chicago IL. Let us know in the comments if there are any that we missed that you will be attending!
