Rutgers Cooperative Extension’s “Earth Day Every Day” educational webinar series is back for Spring 2021. Open to the public, these free sessions focus on steps everyone can take to protect the environment. We can all do our part to take actions that make our homes more sustainable, from starting a native plant garden, to protecting local watersheds, to choosing the right trees for your property. These actions, more than ever, start at home.
You can join them online every Monday starting March 8 at 6:30 p.m. to learn and ask questions of the experts at Rutgers Cooperative Extension. Each week they will cover a different topic and leave you with small actions that, together, will reduce negative impacts on the environment. The spring lineup will cover eight topics, from starting a native plant garden to understanding food systems and climate change. Also included will be a Rutgers University Wildlife Wise session with the Rutgers Wildlife Conservation and Management Program about how to help injured or orphaned baby animals.
Each one-hour live webinar will be presented via Zoom.
