Earth Day Anyway


"Earth Day Anyway" - is a resource of activities individuals and families can take on your own to go outside to celebrate Earth Day's 50th Anniversary and to live a more sustainable life. Initially, this was planned as a large event to be held at a park in Baltimore County. COVID-19 has forced us all to re-group to find opportunities for you and other like-minded folks to appreciate, advocate and engage on behalf of Creation. 

CLICK HERE for a faithful guide to 30 Days of spiritual reflection and action suggestions from Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake.  You can print it out and post it on your refrigerator, by your computer or on your desk. So, even if you can not gather at your place of worship you can still wonder outside and take in all that is wondrous in our world.

Then check the Baltimore Earth Day 2020  site for a growing list of ideas from IPC and other sponsoring organizations for ideas on other activities you can due throughout April while following COVID-19 guidelines.

Additional resources for the first Digital Earth Day can also be found at EarthDay.org.

    Webinar

    Watershed Eyes - Doing Unto Those Downstream in a Shared Watershed

    Developing Watershed Eyes - Doing Unto Those Downstream in a Watershed

    Learn about our common watershed - the Chesapeake Bay -
    and how our actions can care for the health of the waters and our communities. Please RSVP below for this Learning Lab focused on living in a shared watershed. 

    Care for the local waters is a way of caring for our neighbors. As poet-farmer expressed this "watershed golden rule" -
    Do unto those downstream as you would have those upstream do unto you.

    We'll hear from Green Leaders of two congregations who have taken action to care for their local waters. 

    Then we'll offer time for the Solution Circle, a time for you to share. Please bring your questions, ideas, challenges and successes!

    These webinars are designed to supplement the in-person Faithful Green Leaders Training, but everyone is welcome to participate.
