Any Plans for Earth Day?

Tomorrow is Earth Day. Anyone have plans?

I don’t so far. We already went to an early celebration over at Blue Sky Ecological Reserve about a week ago. The kids had a lot of fun. They ended up too tired to help plant trees or even hike very far, but they got to see a rescued possum, tortoise and some other animals.

Besides, we’d hiked about 4-6 miles there the week before that. Not quite sure how far because the trail indicators said about 4 miles, but when my husband looked it over online he came up with about 6 miles. Lots of trails to pick from, so we probably just didn’t go the short way.

We do have a lot of things we do regularly anyhow. We garden. If things go well, my husband gets a new job so we can stay here, we really want to plant a fruit tree in the yard. No budget to do so otherwise.

We open blinds during the day when the weather is nice so we use less electricity. That will stop working in the summer, when it’s keep the blinds shut and cover the windows with sheets or cardboard so we don’t need to use the air conditioner.

We compost. Recycle. Try not to buy things we don’t really need.

So, no particular plans for Earth Day. But I think we’re off to a decent start most of the year anyhow.

What are you doing?

    I’m going to talk to my 5 year old about Earth Day and what it means. She read it on the calendar today and was asking me what it meant, and so tomorrow on the day of I think I’ll go into it in more detail with her. I’m looking forward to it 🙂
