Trout Unlimited is encouraging people to celebrate #EarthDayAtHome with some activities they can do to protect water quality and healthy rivers and streams. From a kids art contest to social media pledges, to hands-on activities like installing a rain barrel or building a native plant rain garden, these #EarthDayAtHome opportunities are designed to be easy, family-friendly and impactful.
The 50th anniversary of Earth Day will be Wednesday, April 22.
Suggestions from TU national, found at www.tu.org/earthday include:
1. Kids #EarthDayAtHome Art Contest
2. Pledge to Protect the Planet
3. Take a TU Family Field Trip
4. Stand Up for Cold, Clean Water
5. Collect Critical Data Through Community Science
6. Install A Rain Barrel at Home
7. Build a Backyard Native Plant Rain Garden
“Just because we can’t get together to celebrate Earth Day doesn’t mean we can’t take individual action to protect the planet and our local rivers and streams,” said Jeff Yates, National Director of Volunteer Operations for Trout Unlimited. “Trout Unlimited’s events and activities are designed to help all of us connect as a community – even digitally – to demonstrate our shared interest in making this world a better, healthier place.”
