Earth Day 5K Green Tour
Fri, April 21, 2017, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
Join our Earth Day 5K Green Tour! The tour is a fantastic way to get outside on Earth Day and get involved with some of the great green groups around NYC. Past sites on the tour have included a rooftop farm in Midtown Manhattan, the Lowline Lab, a natural food cooking school, green skyscrapers, and a composting site. This year's line-up will include all-new sites such as:
- An urban farm in the financial district just blocks from the World Trade Center
- A green vehicle display exploring what makes a vehicle "green"
- A discussion with a brand new campaign counting down to the 50th anniversary of Earth Day which will allow people to green their lifestyles in minutes
- A green building tour*
You'll travel from site to site, learn about what each group is doing on the ground to help green the city, and end the tour with a free lunch provided by one of our partners. The tour is great for school groups, employee engagement teams, or anyone who wants to learn more about some of the environmental work being done right around the corner.
Includes free lunch, a gift bag, and a pass to the New York Auto Show, courtesy of our partners at Toyota Prius.
(The final line-up of tour destinations is subject to change.)
