Earth Day is celebrated internationally on April 22. Here is a look back at Earth Day activities held in Napa Valley.
Kennedy Park was one of six sites around Napa where volunteers gathered Sunday morning to remove trash from local recreational areas to mark Earth Day, the day of environmental awareness first celebrated in 1970.
After taking part in a trash cleanup near Napa's Oxbow earlier Sunday, two volunteers tried out a fishing game at the Earth Day festival in the Oxbow Commons park, using magnetic "rods" to cull refuse from a kiddie pool of wooden "fish." Booths at the outdoor fair represented a variety of environmental and nonprofit groups in Napa County.
The grounds of CIA at Copia were among the areas combed by volunteers Sunday morning during a cleanup of the Oxbow area, one of six such events organized in Napa for Earth Day.
One type of trash was used to store another at the Napa Oxbow, where volunteers from the Napa Youth Stewardship Council used discarded coffee cups to store dozens of cigarette butts during their Earth Day cleanup. The team also recovered at least two carpets and a wood-and-metal chair, among other kinds of trash.
Within the first half-hour of an Earth Day cleanup campaign at the boat launch of Napa's Kennedy Park, volunteers recovered an automotive wheel with the tire still attached, a length of pipe and the bottom of a plastic garbage can. More refuse was deposited on this blue tarp, including large amounts of bottles and fast-food boxes and wrappers.
Families were among those who pitched in Sunday during a trash cleanup at Kennedy Park, one of six to take place in Napa in observance of Earth Day.

Kate Marden, left, and Jana Barkley of West Coast Falconry, each holding a falcon from their falconry, explain the different hunting styles of birds of prey, such as Peregrine falcons, Harris’ hawks and great horned owls. The birds have different ways of catching and killing their prey. Some of their birds are used in vineyards to hunt pest birds such as starlings, which will eat grapes from the vines.
As part of the falconry demonstration at Calistoga Ranch’s Earth Day celebration, guests got to hold some of the birds. Shown here is Lily Lundquist, daughter of City of Calistoga’s senior planner Erik Lundquist, holding a falcon. The bird had just flapped its wings and brushed Lily’s face.
