This year marks the 26th annual Oakland Earth Day, as well the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day, April 22, 1970. Fifty years ago it was estimated that 20 million people organized across the United States and helped catalyze the modern environmental movement.

Although the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, prevents us from gathering in person like when one in ten Americans did on that first Earth Day, or like Oaklanders have traditionally done to volunteer, we can still organize and take actions for the Earth from our homes.

We're sharing 50+ home-based and online ideas in honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day! We'll be updating this list as we learn of and create additional resources.

We also want to hear what you're doing to celebrate and steward the Earth. Share your ideas via email adoptaspot@oaklandca.gov and/or at www.facebook.com/sustainableoak.
