Today the resource I'm sharing gives you Fifty Environmental Activities Kids Can Do At Home.  This article was written by Megan Severson, one of our Kennedy parents. 

Our family went for a bike ride this weekend at the UW Arboretum in Madison. We stopped to do a 5 minute litter challenge along Lake Wingra and found 29 pieces of trash! Make sure to follow your local, state and CDC guidelines before venturing into your neighborhood, staying the recommended distance from others. Photo: Megan Severson.
