1.) Plant a tree in your backyard: Besides being a fun activity for your family, planting trees help to lower greenhouse gas emissions, and they provide a habitat for a variety of other plants and animals. Go to your local nursery, and pick out the perfect tree for your yard.  More trees in your yard can actually lower your cooling bill by providing shade over your house.

2.) Visit a nearby recycling facility: Recycling processes are fascinating and fun to watch. If you save up recyclable materials to drop off during the visit, you’ll earn some extra change you can use to treat everyone to ice cream cones afterwards!

3.) Make a pine cone bird feeder! Attract birds right to your yard, and watch them as they enjoy a healthy snack. Making pine cone bird feeders is a fun and easy activity for your kids!

4.) Plant a vegetable garden: April is the perfect time to plan your garden. Section off an area of your yard and decide what you’d like to grow this year. If you don’t have a yard, window boxes and large pots work just as well.  My friends actually do a container garden on their back patio every year, and they always have amazing tomatoes!
