Earth Day

5 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day! 🌎

Saturday, April 22 is Earth Day! Celebrate your home (and everyone else’s!) with these acts of preservation and appreciation!

Enjoying the OutdoorsΒ is brought to you in partnership withΒ Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District.Β 

Does Earth Day inspire you to get outside? Maybe you prefer to celebrate nature from the comfort of air conditioning. You can honor Mother Earth this year by participating in one of these activities on April 22nd!

  1. Go for a walk or a hike. Get outside and enjoy the beautiful sights, sounds, and scents of nature. Be sure to stay on trails and clean up after yourself. Maybe take the time to pick up litter along the beach or teach yourself about a new species of tree.
  2. Walk or bike- don’t drive. If you’re lucky enough to work from home or have the weekends off, try to avoid using your car. If you need to go somewhere, chose to walk, bike, or take public transportation if it’s available to you.
  3. Plant a tree or some flowers. Look up what trees are indigenous to your area and add one to the mix. You can also plant some flowers that attract pollinators, such as sunflowers, snapdragons, daisies, lavender, or a butterfly bush!
  4. Make a change in your day-to-day life to improve the environment. You could write an email to your representatives concerning climate shifts, pledge to reduce, reuse, and recycle, or take steps toward conserving water every day.
  5. Check out an Earth Day Clean-Up event at one of the MWCD Parks! See below for a schedule!
