  1. Also, Old Oakland Neighbors is sponsoring a clean-up and replanting day at Lafayette Square Park, at 10th and Jefferson. Thanks for compiling this list of Earth Day events!


  2. Yes, I should underscore—this list only includes the events I can easily walk to, since I needed a cutoff point. There are dozens more all across the city, from Old Oakland to Sobrante Park to Piedmont Pines to Arroyo Viejo Park to the waterfont. Hopefully something for everybody!
