Earth Day for Kids & Families
April 22nd, 2021, will mark the 51st anniversary of Earth Day. We use this day to celebrate the natural wonders of our planet earth and learn about ways we can join the fight against climate change.
This year marks a critical time in this movement in regards the increasingly urgent threats facing our environment. It's an important year to be an activist, to pay attention to new/changing policies you can support, movements you can donate to, and general ways you can get involved. It will take all of us working together to create effective change!
Younger generations are an essential part of the movement. The future is in their hands! Luckily, there are many fun ways to get children involved on Earth Day. Join us for the following events to learn about climate change, celebrate the natural world, and understand what it means to be an activist.
