Earth Day 2011. What to do…

Today is Earth Day. How am I celebrating? A pre-school Easter party, a paddle down the Truckee River and a nice short shower.

Haven’t thought about how you’d like to celebrate? It looks like there are festivities going on all weekend in most places; do a google search and see what’s happening in  your town. Festival, river clean-up, pic-nic, bike ride, garden, kite flying…? If you need ideas check out this post from Debi at Go Explore Nature.

All I know is that you have to do something! There’s not many ‘holidays’ with a good excuse to get outside attached to them. Gotta support that!

I also have to admit, on thing I love about Earth Day is the posters. This years favorite: Earth Day Jacksonville!
Whatever you decide to do this weekend, make sure it’s outside!

  1. Happy Earth Day, friend! Thanks for the shout out. Have a wonderful day! :)

  2. Love the ideas! and the posters!

    We went to the park – for hours – when we should have been doing so many other things. My 20-month old is super sick – but we HAD to be outside today! I wrapped him up in a blanket (I think he has a virus – fevers, stuffy nose, etc.) and we had a picnic. My older kids played and played. I hope I don’t pay for that tonight…

    • Liz – You know, they say “nature is the best medicine.” Ok, so I just made that up, but hopefully it’s true and the little one is feeling better… Mostly for your sake.
