The Nature Conservancy’s Adirondack Chapter has shared the following activities for joining in the online festivities on this 50th anniversary of Earth Day:
Learn About Nature: some parents are finding it stressful to take on the roles of their teachers while the schools are closed, but the NCAC has created a Nature Lab to help children and parents alike to take part in nature related activities, in turn learning the science behind nature and what we can do to preserve it. View the Nature Lab’s resources for K-12 students here.
Discover Nature: Human beings and the earth or mostly made of water, and water is the driving force behind most organisms. The Nature Conservancy will be showing “H20: The Molecule That Made Us.” This is a three-part documentary series which takes viewers on a tour around the world with the Nature Conservancy’s own Giulio Boccaletti, along with other experts. Check your local PBS listings here.
Be a Citizen Scientist: The Nature Conservancy has a wide array of programs for you to keep occupied while you are at home. Catalogue living organisms and document your experiences and learn to recognize invasive species in order to help protect our economy. Check out their programs here.
