Earth Day at the REACH
April 22, 2023 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
The 2023 Earth Day event in the Tri-Cities is a partnership including Battelle Memorial Institute, Ben-Franklin Transit, the Tri-Cities Chapter of Citizens Climate Education, Sustainable Tri-Cities, Life@PNNL, and the Reach Museum, which is offering free admission between 10am-2pm on April 22nd.
The theme will be HEALTHY PEOPLE, HAPPY PLANET. Our goals are to engage all ages (especially kids) in adopting ways of living that are healthy for themselves, for their local environment, and for the global climate, and to make the event accessible to those without motor vehicles. With grant support from WA Ecology, Ben Franklin Transit will declare a fare free day on April 22nd to ensure that people from all walks of life can attend the Earth Day celebration in Richland. The $0 fare applies to all the big buses so people can “Try Transit” rather than drive to any activity they have planned for this Saturday from 7am to 10pm. Plus, we encourage all forms of eco-friendly travel, like walking, biking, rolling and ridesharing, so that Earth Day participants actively reduce vehicle emissions on April 22nd and beyond to support a happy planet. Parking will be limited so extra bike racks will be available for secure bicycle parking.
