In 1892, famous environmentalist John Muir and his friends came together to protect the Pacific coast and make sure that it was protected and accessible to everyone. Since then, the scope of the Sierra Club has expanded and the mission has evolved to bring people together to defend our natural resources and everyone’s right to use them.
This is the second year our family is partnering with the Sierra Club as ambassadors for the Born Wild Project to celebrate Earth Day. This year, as a family, decided to run our own Earth Day hike and clean up fundraiser to raise money for an environmental cause. We love exploring the outdoors and we want to help ensure that the spaces we explore are around for future generations. Also, what better way to celebrate the earth than to get outside!
The Power of Donating
Our two daughters are getting really excited for the hike. We hike a lot but this one is different. They are excited to raise money to help protect the spaces that explore together as a family. They want to make change and I see the desire to create change in their faces when we talk about our family Earth Day hike. Donate and support our family Earth Day Hike here.
Donate and Win Prizes!
As a family we are also running a giveaway from April 1-8th! Every donation, big or small, will be entered to win a Parks Project t-shirt, Klean Kanteen and recycled leggings from Girlfriend Collective. Donations of over $35 USD will automatically receive a Parks Project T-shirt. US residents will get their shirt in time for Earth Day if they order by April 8th. Canadian shirts may take a little bit longer due to shipping. Donate to our family Earth Day Hike here.
