The Hudson County Improvement Authority, in partnership with Hudson County, will host two Earth Day celebrations in North Bergen and Jersey City.
The events keep the HCIA’s 30-year tradition of observing Earth Day and will comply with social distancing regulations.
The first event will be held April 17 at Braddock Park in North Bergen near the 90th Street and Bergenline Avenue entrance.
The second event will be held on April 24 in Lincoln Park near the Westside Avenue entrance.
Both will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“Hudson County is home to New Jersey’s longest running Earth Day celebration, and we are proud to continue our tradition of promoting good environmental habits in a safe and fun way,” said Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise. “The Hudson County Improvement Authority does a tremendous job year round in building a more sustainable future for our community, and we’re looking forward to celebrating Earth Day in a new way this year.”
This year’s theme is “Bringing Hudson County Together” and will give residents the opportunity to learn more about the HCIA and other county agencies.
AParticipants must wear masks.
“For the past three decades, the Hudson County Improvement Authority has brought our community to celebrate our earth and bring awareness to the environmental threats we face,” said HCIA CEO Norman Guerra. “While our celebrations will look different this year, we remain committed to providing residents with the resources they need to live a more sustainable life and look forward to a fun-filled day in our county parks.”
