Community photos: Oakland celebrates Earth Day

on April 21, 2010

The “official” Earth Day 2010 is Thursday, April 22, but Oaklanders have been at it for days now.  Last weekend found locals out enjoying the sun and beautifying their neighborhoods and parks.  From Frick Middle School in East Oakland to Dimond Park in the Oakland hills neighbors gathered together to plant vegetables, maintain trails, tile city waste containers, build affordable housing and mulch city park flower beds.  Browse through their pictures to see what folks have been up to.

And remember, it’s not to late to add your own!  Took the kids for a nature walk?  Joined a community group to plant flowers in a park? Attending a public Earth Day event?  Send a picture to

Please send only one picture per group and include the following information:

Who is in the photo? (Provide the name of everyone in the photo, and the ages of any kids in the photo.)

Where was it taken?

When was it taken?

One sentence explaining what’s happening.

We’ll be collecting photos until 8 p.m, Thursday, April 22.
