Earth Day: a day designed for people to show appreciation for the planet we share… and Reno Tahoe sure has a lot of reasons to be appreciative. This area is home to some of the most breathtaking views on the West Coast – from mountain vistas and Lake Tahoe’s crystal blue water to wide open desert spaces. Check out one of the Earth Day events, or head outside and explore all Mother Nature has to offer here in the Sierra Nevada.
Join the Reno Earth Day celebration in Reno’s Idlewild Park on Sunday, April 22. The twenty-acre park will be filled with engaging activities, stages of live music and entertainment, educational workshops, arts and crafts, contests with prizes, and a unique exhibitor experience.
Celebrate the region’s unique beauty on Saturday, April 21 at The Tahoe Truckee Earth Day Festival, a non-profit, volunteer-run event aimed to educate the public to preserve and protect both local and global natural resources. This event is from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. at The Village at Squaw Valley and is free to the public.
The options for connecting with Mother Nature in Reno Tahoe are limitless, and spring is a perfect season to do it all. Lace up your hiking boots and hit one of the many trails, soak up some rays stand-up paddleboarding on Lake Tahoe or simply stroll through downtown Reno taking in the spring blossoms and public art.
