Earth Day is coming up once again and there are many activities in April that you can participate in to celebrate our planet. Volunteer to clean up our natural areas, plant a tree or learn about conservation – whatever you decide to do, it all helps us take care of this planet we call home. Here are some things to do for Earth Day 2024 in Skagit County.
