Five Ways to Celebrate Earth Day 2020

Five Ways to Celebrate Earth Day 2020

Earth Day

Although we’re all practicing social distancing, that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Earth Day on April 22! While many in-person Earth Day celebrations are cancelled, here are a few ways you can still safely celebrate the 50th anniversary of the event.

• Build a bird house or bird feeder out of recycled materials like an old cardboard box or milk jug.

• Go on a (social-distancing) nature scavenger hunt. Look online for a list of plants, trees, bugs and birds in our area that you can be on the lookout for!

• Craft a nature collage: Make an all-natural art collage with things you’ve found on your nature scavenger hunt, like leaves, pressed flowers, pieces of bark and other small items.

• Brainstorm energy-friendly ideas around the house: Switching to LED bulbs, turning off the AC when you’re not home, etc.

• Get outside! However you choose to spend your Earth Day, make sure to get outside at least once. Spending time outside is good for your health and well-being.

This year in particular, I’m especially grateful for nature, sunshine and fresh air. Spending time outside during the coronavirus pandemic has been a much needed escape from living rooms across the nation and World. So, spend a little extra time outside this Earth Day and celebrate all of the things that our Earth offers.

“The environment is where we all meet; where we all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share.”

-Lady Bird Johnson
