Since 1970, April 22nd has been celebrated as Earth Day, a day we celebrate the wonder of our planet and learn how to protect it. From the majesty of the Grand Canyon to the simple beauty of the tree-lined city street I live on, we could all use more nature in our lives. Some years, I have spent Earth Day doing a park or river cleanup with neighbors. I’ve also gone for a hike or just visited a local park.
To celebrate the 51st Earth Day, I wanted to share activities that kids and adults can do to celebrate and explore nature. Here are my favorites, one for each day starting April 1st through April 22nd, Earth Day. I hope you’ll join me!
