Arbor Day!

 Happy Arbor day!

Here are some fun ways to celebrate Arbor Day!

Plant a tree! Planting trees helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, cleans pollution, secures soil in place to prevent erosion, and provides homes for a lot of biodiversity.

Dress in environmental colors for the day; greens and browns, think "tree"! Wear badges if you have them that carry pithy summaries of your environmental views.

Try making up a simple natural orange vinegar and water counter cleaner. You don't necessarily have to give up your heavy-duty cleaners--just try using them when you really need to disinfect, rather than simply clean.

Take a hike! Go out there and enjoy nature and talk a walk through the woods. You can make it a family event like Stephanie's family did in her post here, or enjoy the solitude of communing with nature. Another great idea to get the kids involved is to go geocaching!

Make a craft! This is especially good if you can used recycled materials. Try one of our Arbor Day craft ideas found here.
