Celebrate Earth Day by Finding New Ways to Explore Nature

It’s no coincidence that Earth Month and Earth Day are celebrated on April 22nd. Flowers begin to bloom, and longer days bring excitement and opportunities. April is the perfect time to notice the little things, seek out new things, and explore nature.

Know Earth More, Love Earth More

It seemed like it would never come for some, but spring is finally in full bloom! Across the country, new buds and blossoms are capturing our gaze, and warmer temperatures are allowing for more time spent outdoors. This makes April an ideal time to observe the wonders of our world and take steps to preserve them.

As environmentalist and author Richard Louv famously wrote, “We cannot protect something we do not love, we cannot love what we do not know, and we cannot know what we do not see. And touch. And hear.”

So, celebrating Earth Month and Earth Day doesn’t necessarily require us to invest in a zero-waste kit or join a local beach cleanup. However, it gives us a perfect reason to find ways to know and love our planet even more.
