University of Hawai‘i, electric vehicle group holding Earth Day events on Big Island
Earth Day on April 22 is just around the corner and there are several ways to celebrate on the Big Island.
The University of Hawai‘i at Hilo and Hawaiʻi Community College are partnering to celebrate Earth Day with both in-person and virtual events throughout the week of April 17 to 23. All programming is related to this year’s theme: “Indigenous Food Sovereignty.”
On April 24, there will be a māla (gardens) day with events held at all three University campuses on Hawaiʻi Island.

The Hawaii Electric Vehicle Association will host Drive Electric Earth Day events across the state where attendees can learn more about EV ownership from advocates, owners and dealers. The Big Island stop will be on April 29. For more information, go to: Hawaiiev.org/events.
The fun on the Big Island will continue long after Earth Day. The Hawai‘i Visitors Bureau has announced a series of celebrations and events throughout early summer.
April also is Native Hawaiian Plant Month and Volunteer Month in Hawai‘i. Most volunteer month events have an environmental and cultural stewardship focus.
