With Earth Day celebrated on April 22nd, The Hudson County Improvement Authority, in partnership with the County of Hudson, will be hosting two Earth Day celebrations in both North Bergen and Jersey City. The HCIA’s 30-year tradition of observing Earth Day is continued for another year while complying with social distancing regulation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year’s theme is “Bringing Hudson County Together.” The organizers hope it will give residents the opportunity to learn more about the HCIA and other County agencies.

The first event will be held this Saturday, April 17 at Braddock Park in North Bergen near the 90th Street and Bergenline Avenue entrance.

The second event will be held on Saturday, April 24 in Lincoln Park near the Westside Avenue entrance. Both events will run from 11AM to 3PM.
