April 21-27 Earth Week

April 21-27 is Earth Week

Today try a recycling activity such as making these beautiful recycled magazine butterflies!  Maybe you would like to make an entire garland of butterflies.  It is one origami project which will be great to try, and you can even try it from newspapers or adverts.

Another great project which is great for recycling is to create a re-usable face maskUse of cloth face coverings to help slow the spread of COVID-19 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Homemade Sew and No Sew Instructions).  Canada’s chief public health officer -Theresa Tam- now says that wearing a non-medical mask can help stop the spread of COVID-19. Be careful out there!

DIY Earth day wildflower seed bombs are another great project for today.  They are fun, and great ways to plant, just by throwing!  Try making native berry bush seed bombs, and planting trees, and well the possibilities are endless for planting native seeds.

Next Generation Climate Change worksheets , Next Generation curriculum and Climate Generation Curricula are great food for thought.  Check them out.

Today is Monday,  April 27, the final day of Earth Week, and the fourth day before the end of the Earth Month celebrations. This year’s Earth Day 2020 theme is Climate Action.

This website is about the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area - an urban regional park of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The hosts are the stewards of the afforestation area. The afforestation area received its name in honour of the great humanitarian, Richard St. Barbe Baker. Richard St. Barbe Baker (9 October 1889 – 9 June 1982) was an English forester, environmental activist and author, who contributed greatly to worldwide reforestation efforts. As a leader, he founded an organization, Men of the Trees, still active today, whose many chapters carry out reforestation internationally. {Wikipedia} Email is StBarbeBaker AT yahoo.com to reach the Stewards of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area
