|Get outside and celebrate!|
|Earth Day has been celebrated on April 22nd for 51 years now. Take some time around this day to get outdoors and notice the signs of spring. Budding trees and wildlife returning to the area remind us all of the cycles of life. What a great time to also be mindful of our part in keeping the planet healthy for the generations to come. Here are a few easy ideas for marking the occasion.
1. Pick up liter
2. Plant a tree
3. Put up a Birdfeeder
4. Create a water station for bees
5. Look at ways to cut energy use at home
6. Plan a Garden
7. Build a Terrarium
8. Start compost area
9. Take a hike
10. Go on a Nature Scavenger Hunt, like the one you can print below!
|Thank you to all our Volunteers!|
|We could not accomplish the work we do at Friends of Rogers without our dedicated staff of volunteers. National Volunteer Week is April 18-24. To show our appreciation, Friends of Rogers, along with the group “Nonprofit Connections” of Chenango County have created a virtual “Just Desserts!” Please take time to watch this photo collage of volunteers at all the participating nonprofits in Chenango County. We will be mailing dessert coupons from Minty’s, Gilligan’s Ice Cream and onCommon Grounds. Thank you for your service to Friends of Rogers and our community!
