This year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, and the Huron-Clinton Metroparks are celebrating by launching virtual activities for those who want to get connected with nature from the comfort of their home.
Due to COVID-19 and the ongoing health concerns of social gatherings, the Metroparks had to cancel their on-site Earth Day clean-ups at the Metroparks.
However, from April 19 – April 26, the parks will still be celebrating Earth Day by launching the Metroparks Earth Day Challenge.
The Metroparks says it encourages you to join in on their social media Earth Day BINGO or photo sharing challenge that you can do from the safety and comfort of your home with your family.
“We want to challenge everyone to think a little ‘greener’ this week. To give you a little incentive, we will have two opportunities for you to be an Earth Day Supporter and earn the special commemorative Earth Day Volunteer Patch (seen above),” the Metroparks said in a statement.
Here is the website that lays out the entire set of challenges: metroparks.com/earthday
Follow their social media accounts throughout the week for updates and tips on how you can make a difference this Earth Day.
