Spring forward with outdoor events

Spring has arrived, and after the snowy winter that socked in much of the Northeast, not a moment too soon. All the more reason to get out of the house and into some warmer weather! At Eventbrite, we’ve got a bunch of great upcoming active and outdoor events—from group hikes to gardening classes to service projects—to help you make the most of the season.

3/24—Decatur, GA
One of the best ways to get outside and get healthy is to start riding your bike to work. But cycling in cities requires real awareness. The Urban Cycling Skills workshops teach attendees how to ride safe and ride smart.

4/10—Columbia, NJ
If you don’t think of New Jersey as a state where you can get out in the wilderness, you just haven’t known where to look. The New Jersey Young Professionals—a group that connects people through a wide range of regular events—hosts an invigorating hike up beautiful Mt. Tammany.

4/10—Bay Area, CA
With a ton of amazing service events happening across the Bay Area for Bay Volunteer Day, residents can simply pick one based on their location and interests. A cleanup at the SF Zoo, a beautification effort at the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park, and a Habitat for Humanity homebuilding project in Oakland are just some of the excellent choices.

4/10—Toronto, ON
No cows will actually be harmed in the making of the Cowhunt, an “urban adventure” game that will play out across the city of Toronto. We love creative events like this—especially when we hear the proceeds will be donated to a good cause.

4/23—Sperryville, VA
The White Oak Canyon Waterfalls Workshop offers a pretty unbeatable two-for-one. First, it’s a spectacular hike through Shenandoah National Park. Second, it’s a photography workshop, with a particular focus on waterfalls (see the photo above if you need any further convincing).

4/24—Palo Alto, CA
Here’s one way to experience nature: eat it. That’s the premise of the Eat Your Landscape event in Palo Alto, which teaches attendees replace ornamental plants with edible ones. Time to ditch those boxwoods and get on the persimmon program.
