Rhode Island may be a small speck on the globe, but we have big hearts when it comes to all things green.

Here are a list of four local activities to make your Earth Day productive

Get them hands dirty!

  1. East Matunuck Earth Day Beach Cleanup on Earth Day: Hosted by Matunuck Oyster Bar, this cleanup focuses on spiffing up the gorgeous area that is Potters Pond, East Matunuck Beach and the Succotash salt marsh. After a day of tidying up, gorge on fresh shellfish (it doesn’t get much fresher than this) and other refreshments. Sign up  here950 Succotash Rd, South Kingstown, RI

2. Party for the Planet at  the Roger Williams Park Zoo: This is a week-long event, but culminates on Earth Day (Friday the 22) at the Environment Fair. Environmentally friendly organizations will be on hand to give advice on how to live green. Free with zoo admission.
