Founded 37 years ago, Earth Day has always been about celebrating the nature in the present tense and making sure we leave it in good conditions for the future.
Defenders of Wildlife are asking parents to take a pledge stating they will be taking their child out to celebrate Earth Day. You could take them to a State Park or to a Wilderness Area, whatever it is that floats your boat.
The Earthday Network has a lot of great information to read up on and share with your children as well. And you know, you don’t have to be a parent, you can take your nephew or niece out or maybe the child you babysit on occasion.
