IT'S EARTH MONTH!!! So many things to do!

It's April, it's Spring, it's Earth Month and there are so many (many!) outdoor activities planned!  I've found that this website does a great job of tracking Earth Day activities and updating them regularly. 

But, there are so many great outdoor and green activities planned around DC that don't make this list.  Here are just a few:

There are some great classes offered at the National Arboretum.  I'm going to one this Saturday on tomato grafting!
And, while you're at it, why not do your own Earth Month and Earth Day adventure.  Rent a kayak or canoe at the KeyBridge Boathouse to explore the Potomac or at the Ball Park Boathouse to explore the Anacostia. Maybe you'll even see one of the bald eagles!!  Give up straws, reduce your plastic footprint, make some of your own food, ride your bike!  There are plenty of ways to celebrate this great month! 

Get outside and take it all in!
