You could take a walk anywhere today but why not make it a park!?! national park, state park, county park… it really doesn’t matter. The weather is hopefully nicer now where you live, the full color of nature is beginning to return and animals are once again out and about. It is the perfect time to get out among it and become a part of nature. It’s peaceful, calming and can bring us to an understanding of what is really important in life and what’s not. (This will vary with each and every person you talk to) Look at a tree and remember that no tow leaves are perfectly alike. There are thousands, maybe even millions of leaves in a park… do the represent the people on the earth? Think about it while you go for a walk in a park.
How to celebrate – Find a park close to you. Go for a walk. Take friends with you so you can share what you see, hear and feel.
Now that Spring is here and all the snow has melted away, at least in the south, it is time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors! There is always something to see and something to do, even if that means doing nothing at all except enjoying nature.
Everything is so green, so fresh, and so new you can stroll the grounds and see life anew. Flowers blooming, birds chirping, sun shining. Maybe not as colorful as fall but still delightful and clean.
Wild life comes out from its hibernation, babies are playful, and even the old grumpy creatures seem to be in a good mood. Everyone seems glad winter is over and bask in the warmth of the sun.
And nearly every park has some sort of playground for children to play, allowing their parents to relax while keeping a close eye on their offspring as they burn off some of that excess energy that spring always brings with it.
Yes, there’s something for everyone at a park, all you have to do is look for it, or maybe it will look for you. Either way, it’s no big deal.
How to celebrate – Take a picnic lunch to a park close to you and enjoy. Feed the birds and critters you find in the park, just make sure to keep your distance from them. Organize a clean-up crew and patrol a park keeping it clean for others.
