Earth Day comes along every April 22nd. It is a day set aside to be mindful about the environment and the myriad of benefits we receive daily from the natural world around us.

Here are 7 easy suggestions anyone can do to participate in a productive way to celebrate 'living on Earth'::


1. take kids to inspect tide pools, a pond, or a mountain stream near you and answer their questions;

2. ask how much solar power has been installed in your city or state to help reduce fossil fuel use;

3. donate some time to a local conservation organization to help one of their projects;

4. become a member of an organization helping to restore wildlife habitat;

5. establish some native milkweeds on vacant land to help sustain migrating monarch butterflies;

6. reduce water consumption by landscaping with water efficient, adapted plants;

7. attend a lecture on energy efficiency and see what design ideas works best in your city or town.


There are many more simple ideas that could be offered to give a good mind-set on what Earth Day should mean every day.
