Celebrate Earth Day with us! Earth Day is an international day of recognition and celebration of our planet. This year's theme is Restoring Our Earth.

We have a fantastic range of activities for you to get involved in to celebrate Earth Day on 22nd April from spotter sheets, colouring sheets and how to guides on how you can help wildlife at home.

The Milton Keynes Council recycling team have developed a fun Earth Day craft activity for you to download and try at home. For more fun crafting activities using recyclable items, check out their website.

UK Astronomy have also shared a special talk on Our Earth, with an insight into our planet from space and what makes it so unique. Watch now on their Facebook page. This talk is part of their 'Astronomy in April' online festival. Check out the rest of their programme here.

Let us know how you're getting involved in Earth Day 2021 on social media by tagging us @theparkstrust!
