Care for the Earth – Green Team

It’s June — Take the 30×30 Nature Challenge!

Step outside and marvel at what nature has to offer
The Green Team invites you to get outside every day this month and soak up the wonder of creation. The 30 x 30 Nature Challenge was created to help boost appreciation for nature and inspire a desire to conserve and preserve what we cherish in the great outdoors. We are invite parishioners to join the challenge, which is hosted by the U.S. Green Building Council along with other businesses and community groups in the Milwaukee area.

It’s simple: Just spend 30 minutes a day for 30 days outdoors. (Time spent commuting and staring at one’s phone don’t count.) There is no cost to participate other than your commitment to spend time in nature. First, opt into the Nature Challenge by selecting you are “Going” to this Facebook event. Next, simply “Like” and “Follow” the USGBC Community 30×30 Nature Challenge Facebook Group Page, and be sure to check it each morning in June for a daily inspiration.

Of course, you can choose how you will spend your time in nature each day. It can be alone as an individual or with family or friends. Or you can choose to find pre-planned nature events in your area that will get you outdoors. Enjoy!
