on April 23, 2023

Richmond residents joined millions of people from around the world celebrating Earth Day on Saturday with activities built around protecting the environment and preserving the planet.

In Richmond’s Unity Park, Urban Tilth, Rich City Rides, Moving Forward, Groundwork, Cal Cameron Institute, Building Blocks for Kids, the city of Richmond and other organizations promoted ways to get closer to nature and away from reliance on fossil fuels.
Kids had a chance to interact with snakes, rabbits and turtles. Dozens of people went home with free plants. And the community enjoyed a performance by traditional Aztec danders.

At the end of the day, Rich City Rides led cyclists on a ride from Richmond Bart Plaza to the other side of San Rafael Bridge.
