60,000 Hours, Oh My!

kids in forest

On September 29, more than 5,000 kids donated more than 60,000 hours on habitat -related service projects. All these hours mean healthier places for plants and animals to live. Some kids raked leaves and planted bulbs, while others cleaned up vacant lots. Acorns and walnuts were collected and put in nurseries to grow new trees. You don’t have to wait till next year’s Public Lands Day to get involved. Contact you local nature center and see if they need volunteers. What about organizing a cleanup project for earth month?
