Activities for Earth Day 2021

Every morning, the amber glow of the sun rise begins to shine down on the tree branches a bit earlier day by day. The nesting birds awake, welcoming the day with new songs. A new day, a new song.

Spring is here and with it comes new energy and maybe most important, more movement. We rise earlier. We enjoy driving with the windows down. We’ve spent the winter, indoors and socially distancing ourselves from others. Now is the time, we emerge. We seek the sunshine and go outside to feel it. Now, more than ever we realize just how important nature is for the soul.

Which, brings us to this Thursday, April 22nd. The day we gather to celebrate Earth Day.

This is a day to reflect and increase our awareness of environmental issue problems and also a day meant for action. This year will be the 51st annual celebration of our beautiful Mother Earth and the theme is “Restore Our Earth”. This is a great reminder to be more conscious in our decisions and how we can reverse damages that have already been caused.

I love being outdoors especially at home in Arizona, where the weather is gorgeous and perfect for outdoor activities. Being in nature restores and energizes our spirit, which is why I write about the importance of protecting wild spaces.
