1919ic Five Favorite Ideas: Earth Day 2020

  1. Take a Trip Outdoors from Inside. Our treasured National Park Service is celebrating Earth Day with a variety of virtual activities.  Check out some amazing scenery and information here:  National Parks.
  2. Support your Native Pollinators. Need a little real outside time?  Plant something new in your garden that will appeal to stressed populations of pollinators such as bees.  Vitally important to our food supply pollinators are also keystone species in many ecosystems.  You can help by nurturing native pollinator-friendly plants.  Check with your local state university agricultural extension office or U.S. Department of Agriculture service center (USDA) for advice on which plants to choose.
  3. Be a Citizen Scientist! Use your smartphone to collect and share data on your local air quality to a global database to aid in understanding how the world works.  Earth Day Network has partnered with the Wilson Center and the U.S. State Department to create a new app:

  4. Examine your Carbon Footprint.

    The Nature Conservancy.
