April Events in Marin: Celebrating Earth Month

March 28, 2023

April events in (and near) Marin are blooming with outdoor activities, spring holiday festivities, garden sprucing, and Earth Day celebrations. Marin’s farms and ranches are buzzing with life – pollinating bees and butterflies, newborn lambs and kids, bunnies-a-hoppin’, and produce and flower crops popping up all around.

Check out the variety of tastings, farm stands, and tours from our local food and fiber producers across Marin. Then, dig in to some spring cleaning with a volunteer work day at one of our many parks and open spaces or in your own garden with some of the home gardening events listed below.

If the weather keeps you indoors, join a virtual event to stay in touch with the flora, fauna, and fun all around us in Marin!
