Earth Day, Every Day!
This year the Florida Museum, in partnership with the University of Florida Thompson Earth Systems Institute, has declared the month of April, Earth Day, Every Day! We invite you to a full month of Earth Day activities and challenges. Each day we have a suggested activity or resource so you can further enjoy nature and live a greener Florida lifestyle.
This April, take up our Earth Day challenge. Do something everyday that will deepen your connection with the natural world and make a difference to the Earth we share.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.— Margaret Mead
