Earth Day 2023 brought the community out throughout North Brooklyn to participate in a variety of activities that give back to or celebrate our planet.

Brooklyn Inlet Park offered a Drawing Landscapes art class led by instructor Monica Schroeder that focused on how to represent trees in their surroundings.

For the early birds, there was a bird walk at 9 a.m. at McGolrick Park. This was followed by an Earth Day community cleanup, which began at 10 a.m., in addition to other activities like a storytime hosted by Greenpoint Library and a plant swap sponsored by Tula House.

Open Streets in our neighborhood, Berry Street, Banker’s Anchor Public Plaza, and Bedford Slip Plaza held performances and activities to celebrate Car-Free Earth Day.

Many organizations got into the Earth Day swing of things before the day itself.  Graham Avenue BID and Big Reuse hosted the Getting It Green at Graham- Street Tree Care event on April 18. Garden tools and supplies were provided for the volunteers, thanks to the sponsorship of NYC Council Member Jennifer Gutiérrez.
