Celebrating Earth Day!

Portland Japanese Garden

Celebrate Earth Day on Saturday, April 22nd! There will be events all around Oregon including festivals,  volunteer opportunities and more! Here's what's happening this weekend:

The Portland Japanese Garden unveiled its $33.5 million Cultural Crossing expansion project recently, which honors the beauty and tranquility of the five traditional gardens. While the existing gardens remain unchanged, the Cultural Village features three new garden spaces featuring cascading ponds and a water terrace, an Arts Learning Center, and a Medieval Castle Wall.

Visit the beautiful Oregon Garden on Earth Day and get FREE admission from 10am to 4pm. Special activities, entertainment, exhibitors, and food will be featured for the garden's 18th annual Earth Day celebration. 

Help keep Oregon clean and healthy! Come together with thousands of other SOLVE volunteers on this worldwide day of service to pick up litter, remove invasive plants, and plant native trees and shrubs across Oregon. 

Come celebrate Earth Day at Portland Brewing Co. & Taproom from 1 - 4pm on Saturday with an optional pre- event 5K with Oregon Brewery Running Series. Sample Portland's best breweries including Portland Brewing, Base Camp Brewing, BridePort Brewing Company, Burnside Brewing Company, Widmer Brothers Brewing, and many more.  Buy tickets in advance or at the door. All proceeds from this event benefit Oregon Brewshed Alliance
