Cleanups aren't the only way to show your love for the planet on April 22. Check out some of these other local events, and you can celebrate Earth Day all week long.

Earth Day is Monday, April 22, but Central New York has started the party for our planet a week early.

Nearly 5,000 volunteers picked up trash last Friday and Saturday in Onondaga County as part of the Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency’s Earth Day cleanup. In those two days, they collected over 8,400 pounds of garbage. Cleanups are planned through this week and into the weekend around the county, if you’re looking to help out.

Keeping in tune with Earth Week, the new Primitive Pursuits club at State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry held a Friction Fire Workshop and Braintanning Demonstration on April 23. The club, which formed last semester, teaches students about being all natural and how to survive in nature. Think "Into the Wild".
