Earth Month of Action

Every Day Actions of the Earth

Take One Action Each Day for the Earth

Earth Day presents us with an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the environmental movement and recommit to protecting our natural resources—including redwoods—today and the for future. As we grapple with a changing climate, the need to take action for the Earth feels more urgent than ever.

Extreme weather and the effects of climate change are impacting lives, communities, and futures around the world. Here in the Santa Cruz mountains, we’ve experienced an overwhelming amount of extreme weather this year with historic storms and disasters that have left our communities and our forests reeling.

We have put together a calendar of 30 actions—from planting a native garden to experiencing forest bathing—you can take anytime to protect the natural world close to you. Learn about the actions and please share with your friends and family so we can make a bigger impact together!
