Roll up your sleeves and join us for the 5th Annual Providence Earth Day celebration, which comprises events throughout the city. PCL is offering planting and clean up projects at two locations:

South Providence Library

Plant flower beds, a shade garden and a pollinators garden. Bring plants to swap and share; take plants for your own home.Pick up trash around the library and help beautify in the neighborhood. Snacks will be provided. Please bring whatever garden tools you can! 

Wanskuck Library

Freshen up the outdoor garden and add herbs to the landscape for a teaching environment.  The event will conclude with a free outdoor yoga class! Green & Healthy Homes Initiative will be on site to demonstrate a new app and will have a free raffle for a Cleanview Plus Bissell vacuum!
Volunteers can sign up online at by April 19th at 4 p.m. to receive Earth Day buttons, FREE rides on RIPTA on April 22 and FREE admission to Roger Williams Park Zoo, Botanical Center and Museum of Natural History on April 22nd and 23rd. 

These Earth Day activities are made possible by a grant from the Partnership for Providence Parks. The Wanskuck raffle is provided by GREEN & HEALTHY HOMES INITIATIVE and the Friends of Wanskuck Library.
