April Quest - Celebrating Earth Week

Happy Spring Nature Swappers!

For our April Quest, we’re celebrating Earth Week! One of our favorite things about spring here in Our Big Backyard is spending time outside in parks and around our neighborhoods. A simple way to keep these public spaces clean is to create or participate in a trash clean-up.   Use the Rhode Island Earth Month Calendar to find a trash clean-up to participate in. If you can’t make an organized trash pick-up, do your own! Pick up trash in a public space, or even in your backyard, and recycle or dispose of the things that you find.


To earn 5,000 points, bring a journal page, photo or drawing all about your cleanup efforts to the swap room, located in Our Big Backyard at Roger Williams Park Zoo. The Nature Swap is open Wednesday to Sunday, 10-1.
