Nature

Do Nature Activities

I will engage in nature-based activities alone, or with my friends or family, for 15 minute(s) each day to connect with the shared ecosystem in which I live and rely on. (This can be anything from going on a walk or hike, to noticing the leaves changing color, to reading a book with nature themes.)

Support Local Pollinators
