Earth Day is on April 22nd. 

Earth day is a day meant to demonstrate support for environmental protection. That's a pretty worthwhile cause considering the fact that we only get one earth. 

We should all enjoy nature and all its beauty. We should also do what we can to preserve it for future generations to enjoy. 

While preserving the earth might seem soo big that it's out of our hands, it's not. Even small actions can help. 

One thing everyone can do is get out and enjoy whatever beautiful nature is near them. 

Get out and enjoy nature

Getting out and enjoying nature is a great way to celebrate Earth Day. 

First of all, it's always good to get a reminder of how beautiful nature can be. Secondly, it can be a family activity. Teaching your kids to appreciate nature from a young age is always a good thing. 

One of my favorite hikes

Almost everyone has something near them they can do in nature. For me, that means going for a hike.

There are soo many great hiking spots in Southern California that it's often hard to choose. 

My personal favorite and I'm incredibly biased, is the Etiwanda Nature Preserve

Located in Rancho Cucamonga, the Etiwanda Nature Preserve has long been one of my favorite hikes. 

One huge positive is that it's easy enough for people of all fitness levels. That makes it a great hike to enjoy with friends or family. 

Another huge positive is that since it's a nature preserve, it's just about as natural as it gets. 

However, there are two big negatives worth mentioning.

There is way too much graffiti. I'll never understand why people enjoy ruining nature with paint.

The trash problem has gotten better over the years, but it's still not perfect. If you visit this or any other hike, please don't leave your trash. 

Final Thoughts

To celebrate Earth Day, please visit nature. It could be a hike or something else. 

While you're there, maybe pick up a couple of pieces of trash.
