This Wednesday (April 22, 2020) will mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. While many of the large scale celebrations will have to be postponed; here are some ideas for ways to celebrate in your home or neighborhood.
Water Rocks!, an Iowa based water education campaign, has two exciting Earth Week art contests. 1) Create a sidewalk chalk masterpiece showing your love for natural resources or ways to help protect planet Earth. 2) Gather interesting objects you find outside to create art from nature!

ISU’s Live Green Monthly Newsletter is also another resource to find ideas for celebrating Earth Day. It is filled with practical tips for living more sustainably, fun DYI Green activities, opportunities for living green as well as other interesting articles.
