Earth Day Mystery Green Tour - Atlas Obscura

New York, New York

Earth Day Mystery Green Tour

Hop on a 5k tour of four incredible green locations in Manhattan, presented by the Earth Day Initiative.

This April, Atlas Obscura is partnering with The Earth Day Initiative to offer access to four unique green sites around the city. As part of this special 3- hour walking tour, you'll travel from site to site to learn about what each group is doing on the ground to help green the city.

Sites this year might include a river education lab right on the Hudson River, a zero-waste office, a state-of-the-art NYC Department of Sanitation facility, and a rooftop farm. The tour is great for school groups, employee engagement teams, and curious-minded individuals who want to learn more about some of the environmental work being done right around the corner in New York City.

While tickets to this event are open to the public, Atlas Obscura is offering a special discounted ticket for $28, available for purchase with the code "AO."
