To Do This Weekend: Earth Day Edition

Earth Day is coming up on Thursday and there’s plenty to do this weekend to celebrate. Unfortunately, everything seems to be happening on Saturday, so hopefully you have a fast-but-fuel-efficient car to get you from place to place.

Rain Garden Creation — From 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, volunteers will transform an empty construction site in Rosslyn into a beautiful urban space and rain garden. Volunteers will plant, paint, and install furniture at the site on North Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard. The temporary urban green space will open on Earth Day.

Arlington County Community Energy Town Hall — The Arlington County government wants citizen input on energy issues in the community. Attendees receive a free compact fluorescent light bulb. The meeting is happening from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Washington-Lee High School Commons Room (1301 North Stafford Street).

E-CARE Recycling Event — Being held between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. at Thomas Jefferson Middle School (125 South Old Glebe Road), this event lets residents recycle bikes, small metal items, shoes, eyeglasses, books, and durable medical equipment. Household hazardous materials will also be accepted but, unlike the last E-CARE event, electronics will not be collected due to space restrictions.

Family Earth Day Event — From the comments section. This event is happening at the Arlington Arts Center from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.

See more weekend events in our events calendar. White you’re there, be sure to check out two very worthy fundraisers this weekend: Saturday’s Pooches on the Patio fundraiser for Doorways Women and Families, and Sunday’s Walk to End Violence Against Girls and Women.
