Happy Earth Day! Are you celebrating Earth Day today? This is what we have been doing to celebrate:
Earth Art! On Saturday, Finn and I made a stained glass planet Earth and the kids made planet-colored apple prints (once again, please ignore my very dirty windows):
Sunday morning, Finn and I headed to a local wetland area to volunteer in an Earth Day tree planting. Unfortunately, the planting was Saturday, and we had missed it.... bummer! We took some time to walk around the pond and enjoy the scenery, and Finn told me that I should get glasses so that I can do a better job of reading the correct date for next time!
Sunday afternoon, the whole family headed to a nearby nature preserve for a short hike and some wildflower viewing. I guess if we couldn't plant any trees at least we could enjoy them.
I finished off the day yesterday by going to see Bill McKibbon's new film Do the Math. It's a film about climate change and it was hugely inspiring. I will write more about it soon.
Today we are hoping to squeeze in a hike to spend some time in nature and also planning on picking up trash from around our neighborhood.
Do you have Earth Day plans?
