Actually, that really is what April looks like in Breckenridge. It's going to take a long time for all that snow to melt!
I live in Breckenridge as many weeks of the year as possible. When I consider ways to give back to my town, I focus on protecting nature. Since April is National Keep America Beautiful Month, I researched volunteer clean up days here. Funny thing is, it’s scheduled for May 21, because there’s too much snow on the ground until then! Plus April and May are called the mud season for a reason.
Does your town have volunteer cleanup days?

Or join the 3.5 million Sierra Club members fighting for the Earth! They have a youth-specific Sierra Student Coalition that empowers teens and young adults volunteering for climate justice. Tell me if you’ve found other great ways for teens to volunteer in your communities.
