Earth Day 2020 - April 22nd - Make every day Earth Day!

During this unprecedented time in our lives there are still things we can do to feel connected and contribute to our communities.  Even while practicing social distancing you are encouraged to get outside and enjoy the fresh air, just remain at least 6 feet away from any people outside your home network. April is starting to bring nicer weather so we are encouraging everyone to contribute to the Spring Clean. 

April 22nd is the 50th Anniversary of the Earth Day Initiative.  We’d love for you to participate from afar.  Show us your #EarthDayatHome #DurhamStrong activities and tag us on social media.

Ideas to get you started:

1. Pick up litter

Help clean up the planet this Earth Day by spending time picking up litter around your neighborhood. Better yet, encourage your friends to pick up litter in their own areas, so you can spread the Earth Day goodness around. Durham Region is allowing a 6 bag limit, so just put the garbage out with your regular trash. 

2. Craft a nature collage.

Celebrate Earth Day this year by making an all-natural art collage with things you’ve found in nature, like leaves, pressed flowers, pieces of bark and other small items. Collect items while you’re out for a hike or exploring your neighbourhood.

3. Earth Day Activity

Show us your earth day crafts.  Did you color a picture, create a collage or bake some cookies.
