Whether you’re in Montana or somewhere else in the country, most of us have been quarantined for more than a month. However, many of us have still been lucky enough to enjoy some fresh air while we safely practice social distancing. With the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day coming up on April 22nd, we think now is good time to celebrate the appreciation of our environment.
From now through Earth Day, we’re asking you to post pictures of you and your fellow quarantiners safely enjoying our environment by using #My2020EarthDay. If you tag @LogjamPresents, we’d also love to share your posts.
As long as you’re abiding by the social distancing guidelines, like the 6-foot rule and avoiding other people, these activities should not only be safe, but actually beneficial to your health. Bottom line, make sure you’re following your local mandates.
These activities can include all sorts of things like hiking, biking, walking or running. Some activities can even take place in your backyard like gardening, planting a tree, or just relaxing in a lawn chair enjoying a breath of fresh air.
Even from the confines of your own house, you can still show your appreciation of Earth. Maybe you could stream the International Wildlife Film Festival or create a piece of Earth Day-themed art to share.
We wish we could ask you to gather with our community for a group cleanup or head to Caras park for a climate rally, but obviously that’s not an option right now. So instead, we think that celebrating and showcasing the enjoyment that our environment provides is a great way to highlight the necessity of conservation and preservation.
It leads people to understand why it’s important to SAVE the Earth: Speak Up, Act, Vote and Educate. You can learn more about ways to protect our environment this Earth Day by visiting the official Earth Day website.
