Any plans? I'm just hoping for no snow so I can get outside and enjoy some fresh air! Do you have any Earth Day traditions? Are there events in your community to attend?

We participated in Earth Hour last month, turning off lights, screens and electronics at home.  


On Earth Day, there is usually a park clean-up in our community.  We usually help out, so that's probably what we will do this year too.


I want to do some gardening this spring and summer. I've neglected the garden at this house because I keep thinking/hoping that we will be moving on but it hasn't happened. I'm tired of living with a weed patch. It's depressing. Earth Day is probably a good day to work on the garden too.

Oh, this reminded me of Earth Day, and my town has a fun Earth Day celebration every year.  One year my local LLL had a booth there.

We had a lovely picnic in the woods and enjoyed the beautiful day outside soaking up the sun rays :D
