Connecting with Nature During Challenging Times
Due to COVID-19, many of GBLC’s events had to be canceled, such as volunteer clean-up days at Lake Mansfield and guided bird walks and family hikes. However, during the month of April GBLC held a Tree Seed Photo Challenge which provided families and individuals with fun nature-focused activities to do at home. This event, which was planned months in advance, ended up being the perfect at-home activity for these challenging times.
Through the virtual event, GBLC shared some wonderful native species of trees to celebrate Arbor Day. You can find pictures and descriptions of them on their website. GBLC also shared at-home nature activities from local and global organizations and organizers and recommended nature book titles.
