Finding a place to volunteer during Earth Month can be as simple as checking in with a favorite environment-minded organization, like Friends of the LA River or LA Waterkeeper, two groups hosting river cleanups in the days ahead.

There are whimsical ways to let loose, too, all while supporting the urgent message behind Earth Month, one that reminds us that tending to our home planet is a constant and critical matter.

CicLAvia, that motor-free festival of bike-tastic joy, is putting the ebullient emphasis on Earthly concerns at its next outing "Mid City Meets Pico Union," which just happens to take place at the month's centerpoint: Sunday, April 16.

The place?

You'll be biking, sauntering, or even unicycling (if that's your thing) along four miles of Washington and Venice Boulevards, and a bit of 7th, too. A trio of bustling hubs will offer places to stretch a leg, get to know locals through a variety of community booths, and jump into lively activity, if that's what you're up for.

Accelerate Resilience L.A., "which helps envision Los Angeles as a climate-resilient region that is safer, healthier, and more prepared for our new climate reality," has partenered with CicLAvia on the April 16 event.
