Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which day events worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Scout troops all over the USA stepped up and helped the environment. Below are some great projects done by troops just like you. Add your Earth Day ideas in the comments below.

My GS troop of 8 second grade Brownies will be picking up trash along one of our favorite trails at Burr Oak Woods in Blue Springs MO. Then we will be planting a rain garden with native plants for Missouri.
