Animal Crossing New Horizons' new event  'Nature Day' arrives in April as it aims to celebrate the real world's Earth Day!

Earth Day, which is what the real-world event is called, is an annual event celebrated around the world to demonstrate support for environmental protection.

First celebrated in 1970, it now includes events coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network in more than 193 countries.

This was one of the first major events in the game's lifespan when it launched last year; so what can we expect in 2021's Nature Day event?

When Is Nature Day Start In Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

The 2021 Nature Day event will begin on the 15th April in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and will end on the 22nd April, that's all the time you'll get to purchase the Cool Globe item. On April 22, the event will officially start, lasting 2 weeks.

Earth Day is traditionally celebrated on the 22nd April.

In 2020, the event will began on the 23rd of April and ran until the 4th May 2020.

What Will Nature Day Include?


If it's similar to past Earth Day events in previous games, players will engage in activities and earn rewards themed around environmentalism.

New content will be coming to the game and you can earn Nook Miles from doing activities like playing shrubs.

Here's what's coming in the new event update:

Leif's Garden Shop

Leif will be appearing and selling all sorts of Gardening goodies

Plant Shrubs

New agriculture will be available in the form of shrubs

Jolly Redd's Treasure Trawler

Redd returns with an abundance of rare items for sale in his ship-shop located on the secret beach.

Redd sells pieces of art, but be careful as some are fake - it's up to you to figure out what's fake and what's not.


Leif Returns

It appears that Leif the Sloth is leading the special event this time around.

In City Folk and New Leaf, this day was also called Nature Day.

Players were able to communicate with the host of the event, which was Tortimer in the first Animal Crossing (rewarding the player a Tree Model), City Folk (rewarding the player a Cool Globe) and Isabelle in New Leaf (rewarding the player with a Cool Globe).
