Do Your Part.
Show the kids how to pitch in to keep the environment around us clean for all to enjoy. Join in on a Waterway cleanup or Beach cleanup near you or clean the neighborhood around you! Teach the kids about recycling or find some cute ideas for ways to reuse packaging for crafts with the kids. Check out some of these neat ones on Pinterest.
Attend an Earth Day Event.
Explore South Florida Nature on your own.
For a low key observance of Earth Day, grab some water and your walking shoes and take a hike through SFL scrub areas so kids can see what Florida looked like before it was developed.
