One simple way to observe Earth Day is to take a walk outside, but remember social distancing best practices no matter where you are. Nature walks are a fun and easy way to connect with nature. A walk in your backyard, down the sidewalk, or at a local park are all great opportunities to look at and listen to the signs of nature. Just remember to stick close to home when going out and avoid crowded areas. When checking out your local state park, consider walking or biking there to avoid crowded parking lots and please respect all parking signs. Just remember that all state park bathrooms are closed as a precaution and please carry out anything you carry in as all trash cans have been removed.
