Rutgers Cooperative Extension’s “Earth Day, Every Day” educational webinar series is back this fall. 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 controlling invasive pests to collecting environmental data to protecting your local watershed. These actions, more than ever, start at home.
Join us every Monday starting September 13 online at 6:30 PM to learn and ask questions of the experts at Rutgers Cooperative Extension. Every week we will cover a different topic and leave you with small actions that, together, will reduce negative impacts on the environment. The fall lineup will cover seven topics ranging from the spotted lanternfly and the new plastic reduction law, to the science of rain gardens. Our last 3 sessions will focus on specific issues affecting our cities and urban communities. Learn about safe practices for urban soil, combined sewer overflows, and urban wildlife.
This year, share with us the eco-friendly changes you’ve made at home or in your community. Participants can post pictures on social media of how they are making every day Earth Day with the hashtag #e2d2 (Earth Day, Every Day).
Each live webinar will be one hour and will be presented via Zoom. To join, you need either a computer, tablet, or smartphone with speakers. More information about these free sessions and a link to registration can be found on the website.
