The East End’s nature and arts organizations pulled out all the stops Earth Day weekend, with events ranging from an electric car fair to arts workshops to beach cleanups, a 5K run and hikes through the region’s most pristine places.
Earth festivities continue this coming weekend with the Quogue Wildlife Refuge‘s Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 28 from noon to 3 p.m. and at Custer Observatory in Southold, which will hold a twelve-hour-long festival, from noon to midnight, with kids events, astronomy information and stargazing under the dark sky.
