SF Rec and Park Kicks Off Earth Month Madness
SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco Recreation and Park Department announced today a series of April community events in celebration of Earth Month. In partnership with REI, Earth Day SF, California Academy of Sciences and many more community groups and volunteers, SF Rec and Park will be celebrating “Earth Month Madness”.
“As we celebrate Earth Month, we also celebrate our parks and green spaces and remember how they help us build a healthy San Francisco,” said, Mayor Ed Lee. “San Franciscans love their parks and we are fortunate to have one of the best park systems in the world.”
“We want to remind everyone that every day is an Earth Day,” said, Phil Ginsburg, SF Rec and Park General Manager. “Please join us to celebrate our earth with tree planting, wild habitat restoration, park beautification, clean-up and more.”
Every year, SF Rec and Park volunteers contribute an average of more than 145,000 hours to participate in a wide variety of projects including weeding, planting, mulching, habitat restoration, trash pick-up, trail maintenance, painting, graffiti removal and more.
