Are you ready to rise to the challenge? Living with nature in mind doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, we are releasing four, easy weekly challenges that you can do to appreciate and connect with nature! New prompts drop Fridays at 10 am for four weeks and ends at midnight the following Wednesday. Each challenge is designed to help your brain take a step back to really think about how your daily interactions impact the natural world around you. If self-reflection isn’t your thing, then that’s okay! Being outside, or participating in an activity that’s nature-related is just as good.
Share your photos with us by commenting your photoon the social media post. You will automatically be entered to win some pretty sweet gifts! If there are no winners for the week, the prizes will be awarded to participants during the next week’s challenge. Only one entry per person, per challenge. Winners are allowed, and encouraged, to participate in the next weeks’ challenge. Only residents with a Delaware Address will be able to receive prizes. Winners will be selected at random.
