The weather’s finally warming up, and nothing says spring like spending time outside. It’s also a great time to think about ways to give back. Here, a few ways to enjoy the warm weather and your community.
Celebrate National Park Week April 19-27 by taking your family outside to see what your nearest park has to offer. The best part? All 397 national parks across the country are offering free admission throughout the week! Find out more at nps.gov/npweek.
Volunteer! Spring is a great time for making new commitments, so why not find a way to volunteer in your community? If your kid’s an animal lover, check with your neighborhood shelter about becoming a dog-walker, or look into possible volunteer opportunities for older kids at a local zoo.
