This year marks Earth Day’s 50th anniversary and you might be feeling limited on what you can do to celebrate. No need to worry, there are tons we can do and it can all be done from our homes and backyards!
King County is providing a variety of activities to do at home for Earth Day’s 50th anniversary. Download and print environmentally-themed crossword puzzles, bingo, mazes, word searches and coloring pages. If you have children you can play word games and spot the difference with them, or take advantage of the environmental education activities provided by Washington Invasive Species Council and Washington State Parks Junior Ranger Program. You can also contribute to the Good Farmer Fund for farmers who have been financially impacted by COVID-19.
Want more activities to do for Earth Day?
UW Bothell has a week’s worth of activities to do in celebration of the 50th anniversary. From DIY gardening workshops to streaming movie watch parties and virtual book clubs, UW Bothell will provide different ways to connect with nature and each other while we stay at home. If a week isn’t enough, Seattle U is celebrating all month long.
Seattle U has a webpage dedicated to webinars and online discussions about Earth Day initiatives and campaigns you can get involved in. They even challenge you to make one small change to make our common home a more sustainable place to live in with their “Earth Day EcoChallenge”.
For another virtual experience, check out Trees for Seattle’s new Tree Walk app. You can learn what trees do to create a healthy environment and explore the different trees in Seattle neighborhoods. Find this app on their website or download it on your phone from the Google or Apple app stores.
