4 Ways to Get Your Hands Dirty for Earth Day

By: Sara Innamorato

Earth Day is on Wednesday, April 22, which means there will be plenty of festivities happening around the City of Pittsburgh to celebrate all things green. Although we love a good party, we also think it’s important to remember that you can have a big impact with a small gesture, like volunteering for an organization’s clean up day .

Here are a few suggestions of great, green organizations that need your help cleaning, greening and beautifying Pittsburgh for Earth Day:

1. Clean up day with Pittsburgh Park ConservancyNine Mile Run Watershed Association at Frick Park

  • April 18, 9AM-12:30PM
  • Wear long pants and closed-toed shoes

2. Earth Day @ South 4th Street with Allegheny Cleanways & Friends of the Riverfront

3. Arbor Day Tree Planting with Tree Pittsburgh

4. Earth Day on the Avenues with GTECH (that’s us!)

Help us clean up 8th Avenue in Homestead. Activities will include planting, weeding, mulching and general spring-cleaning activities in spaces like the Frick Park located in Homestead and the Amity Harvest Community Garden.

Also, we can’t resist a good celebration, so join us afterwards as we host a pop-up party on a vacant lot in Homestead.
