Aquidneck Island Earth Week: 7 family-friendly, can’t-miss events

Aquidneck Island Earth Week returns April 16-25 with dozens of family-friendly events, including games, concerts, cleanups and contests.

Sara Poirier, the organization’s director, said during the last four months, partners have been collaborating on ideas for environmentally-themed programs and activities.

One of the goals of Aquindeck Island Earth Week is to strengthen the network of organizations working on issues related to the environment, conservation and sustainability. Partners include schools, non-profits, town committees and local businesses.

By coming together to offer a full week of programming, they aim to amplify each other’s efforts, increase engagement around environmental issues, and serve as an example for other communities.

“We hope to inspire Aquidneck Islanders to care and take action for the environment,” Poirier said. “The scale of AIEW is important. It demonstrates that we can work together as a community to take care of the things that we love. This is critical for people to feel hopeful about the future. ”
