Happy #EarthDay 2018 and #NationalParkWeek ! 🌎 Today is a day we honor the Earth, its conservation & preservation - it was first celebrated on March 21, 1970, the first day of spring in the Northern hemisphere. This annual event is a great reminder for all of us to do our part - not just today, but every day & support those who care about environmental protection all over the world. 🙏🏼 I just want to warn you that I will probably continue to be annoying about the causes I care most about haha - I'm all about actions speaking louder than words and I'm a little mad at myself for not doing something about these issues sooner. It sure does humble and inspire me though when I'm able to join in on clean-up events for the environment (swipe left for the trash collected 🚯 picked up ~45 cigarette butts, used tissue, used McD's cup, different bottle caps & my favorite: someone's @alamorentacar rental agreement in French from March 2016... crazy!). But, #EarthWeek is a great reminder to be more mindful of the daily carbon footprint we are leaving behind, to refuse single-use (plastic straws, cups, to-go containers, etc.) and the different actions we can take to help preserve our beautiful planet for future generations to come. And for Heaven's sake, please pick up your cigarette butts when you're done smoking! 🚭😡 When possible... remember to reduce, reuse, recycle - there's no such thing as "away" when it gets thrown into the trash can. Always remember to leave it better than you found it! 🌎♻️💜🚯 And it's awesome that people enjoy the outdoors, but please be responsible - remember to pack it in and pack it out, never take more than you can carry, and (last, but not least) always practice #LeaveNoTrace principles when exploring and enjoying the outdoors & our public lands! 🍃🌎💜🌲 @leavenotrace @outdoorresearch @parksproject #EarthDay2018 #DeathValleyNationalPark #SaveOurPlanet #DeathValley #HikeDeathValley #SweatyDirtyHappy #ParkChampions #ForceOfNature #NationalParkGeek #ExploreResponsibly #NationalParkLife
It has been such a beautiful day for my first volunteer beach clean-up with @calparks out at #SilverwoodLake ☀️ I am so humbled by these experiences, being able to give back to Mother Nature and learn so much from different #ParkChampions who come from all over CA to volunteer and help take care of the environment. I look forward to the next clean-up, wherever that may be! 🚯♻️ #CAStateParks #CaliforniaStateParks #CalParks #DontLitter #CaliforniaStateParksFoundation #LeaveNoTrash #LeaveNoTrace #EnjoyYourWorld #ProtectPublicLands #TrashFreeEarth #BeInconvenient #UnitedOutside #OutdoorResearch #EveryCorner #TeamSierra #LetsKeepItWild #EarthDayKeeper #WWHSteward

How many people does it take to remove a massive non-native date palm? 15+ and it’s only half gone. This past weekend I gladly gave my sweat and time to help...met some really cool people as well. #parkchampions #saltonsea #volunteer #optoutside #castateparks #giveback

Woke up this morning wondering why I was so sore then remembered all those buckets of water I hauled up the side of this state park yesterday. But planting day was a success! #ParkChampions #nativePlants
Thanks @reggit3 for sharing this picture of the Park's boulevard looking really autumnal!
Thank you @letsyogalondon for sharing this great picture of the Park at night!
A volunteer caught these elephant seals saying hi to our Park Champions at their first volunteer workday at Año Nuevo State Park today, helping prepare the trails for all the visitors excited to see these animals. Plus, the volunteers were treated to a tour by our Core Leader Bob who also happens to be a docent for the park!

Congratulations to @trifictrudi for winning photo of the month in October with this great picture of the #orchards at #MandevillePlace
Perfect day on the mountain for some orchard maintenance. The older apple trees at the state park are around 120 years old and needed a little pre-winter TLC. #palomarmountain #palomarmountainstatepark #castateparks #parkchampions #californiastateparkfoundation #cspf

London's Ovarian Cancer Support Walk 2017 - Park Champions like myself are supporting all over the Olympic park today as 400 people walk 5k/10k; having raised £83000 already for this charity. 11 women a day lose their life to Ovarian cancer, so a very worth cause and I feel quite emotional as lots are wearing t shirts in memory of someone close to them. 💕 #targetovariancancer #charitywalk #makeadifference #walkathon #charitywalk #charity #togetherwecan #queenelizabetholympicpark #parkchampions #volunteer #volunteering #donateyourtime #olympicpark #kickcancersbutt

Trail maintenance and building drainage ditches with #ParkChampions ! Super dusty, lots of rock hauling, trench-age fixing. We broke a sledge hammer! PC to Phillip Otto.
Pretty incredible weekend camping with California State Parks Foundation, doing trail maintenance, hiking, and eating a lot of great food. #ParkChampions
