Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Ah, spring! Warmer weather, sunny days (sometimes, anyway!), and animals out of hibernation. Many times it feels like we’ve been hibernating, too, waiting for happier days to arrive and the pandemic to end. Fortunately with spring come more opportunities to get outside, get active, and enjoy the world around us.

Start a Garden

As the weather warms up, now is the perfect time to get a garden started. To keep things free, use these tips:

Take a Walk, Snag a Book

In addition to town libraries, Little Free Libraries have popped up in even greater quantities since the pandemic began. Take a walk in your neighborhood or other nearby areas and stop at one of these boxes. They are filled with free books to share. Take a book to add to your reading pile or add extra books from your own collection to the little library to share! To find a Little Free Library in your area (or an area you’d like to visit), head to their website. As an added bonus, you’ll be getting some exercise and enjoying the fresh air!

Enjoy an Event

As new events are added to the calendar, there seems to be a trend: activities are moving away from virtual and back to in-person. While most of these events are limited to outdoor options, it will be nice to see people in real life, rather than on a screen. To check out the latest additions, head to the Events calendar. Be sure to follow all mask and social distancing guidelines as indicated.

Head Outside

Don’t forget that the classics still apply: take a hike, head to a playground, or go for a walk. Enjoy the great outdoors and have fun with nature! Check out the tabs above for more ideas.
