3 Outdoorsy Activities You Can Do Anywhere This Earth Day

Attention: Earth Day is April 22. How are you planning to nurture Mother Nature and yourself on this special day?

Across the U.S. and beyond, Earth Day has become a pivotal holiday, with marches, exhibitions, seminars and festivals solely dedicated to our lady, Mother Earth. While this day is meant to be celebrated, it also serves as an important reminder to be gentle to our planet. Organizations worldwide come together to both educate and mediate, and we encourage you to reflect on your contributions and how you can continue to make our planet a safe, clean place for all.

To pay homage to Mother Nature, here are 3 outdoors activities you can do anywhere in the world to show her a little extra love on Earth Day.   

Volunteer for a CleanUp event with National CleanUp Day

For the entire month of April, National CleanUp Day and Earth Day Network are teaming up with community members and grassroots organizations around the country to clean up green spaces, urban landscapes and waterways. With 25 clean-up locations in more than 20 cities, and a call to action to communities nationwide, Earth Day 2019 CleanUp will deploy an army of volunteers to make a tangible impact on waste in our environments. Find a CleanUp event near you here, or find opportunities to rally your community here.

If you’re in Boulder, CO, Huck Adventures is hosting a clean up event on April 27 along Boulder Creek. Let us know you’re coming and read all the event details here.

Get a little dirty

We’re not all blessed with a backyard or a community garden, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find some dirt. Locate your nearest green space and get your hands dirty in celebration of Mother Earth. Whether it’s sowing some greens in your garden, fostering a tree, or helping your local community center with some landscaping, it will feel great to get your hands into some soil and be a part of bringing our Earth some new plant life.

Take a walk

Take a walk! Take a hike! Who cares! Just get outside and revel in all of the beauty around you. One of the easiest ways to give back to Mother Nature is to respect her and to enjoy her, so wander along your favorite trail, up a mountain, or on the sidewalk and take a look around. The whole point is to feel the wind in your hair and soak it all in, so don’t be too stressed about your destination. If you want some suggestions, though, we say you find a spot under your favorite tree or plan a little picnic in the park to carpe that diem.

What are your plans this Earth Day?

Earth Day 2019

When you’re outdoors, it’s the perfect time to start making a difference.

Our team at Huck Adventures is dedicated to preserving the wonder of nature by keeping our land, oceans, and trails clean. A big part of our mission is to reinvest in the outdoors by partnering with nonprofits who have made that their mission.

That’s why we’ve partnered with National CleanUp Day to participate and promote a nationwide volunteer event in honor of Earth Day 2019 in conjunction with Earth Day Network.

Throughout the month of April, grass roots organizations and corporate partners are uniting communities across the U.S. to clean up our green spaces, waterways, and trails. So far, National CleanUp Day has cleanups organized in 13 focus cities throughout the U.S., including Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Phoenix, Richmond, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. Each city has at least 25 different clean-up locations to choose from.

We’re excited to participate and look forward to announcing our clean-up site in Boulder, Colorado, in the next two weeks.

It’s an opportunity to inspire a spirit of volunteerism and make a positive impact on our environment. Because studies have shown that people will pitch in when they see someone else picking up litter. And we need all the help we can get.
