3. Baseball Game
With the World Series taking place on October 30, there's still plenty of time to grab a few friends and find some cheap tickets. Watching baseball outside in early Fall is the perfect weather to enjoy the sport!
4. Outdoor Concerts
Every city has outdoor concerts - both free and ticketed. Organize a group outing with friends and family, but don't forget to bring a blanket if it's in a park. What better way than to bring snacks and beverages to enjoy!

5. Picnic In The Park
Another easy way to be outside and snack in the great outdoors. This is great for the cooler end of summer days - ones you can finally sit in the sun again without sweating too much. A picnic in the park is also a great way to celebrate a birthday or other special occasion.
6. Go Camping
There are only a few weekends left before temperatures start dropping at night, so look for some local spots you've been dying to try or return to. Don't forget to bring the s'mores.

Even if you splurged on the end of summer vacation, you can still get out of the city and go someone nearby - you know, that place you've been talking about all summer ;)
9. Declutter Your Living Space
With the seasons changing, it's time to go through your living space and re-evaluate what should stay and what should go. Get rid of everything you haven't used in awhile. Start the new season on a fresh start, you'll feel so much better once you've let go of things that no longer bring you joy.

10. Make A List Of Goals You Want To Accomplish By Next Summer
Write down in a journal (or blog, instagram, etc) specific and attainable goals you want to accomplish by next summer. The more vocal and specific you are, the more likely you are to accomplish those goals.
Why pollinator conservation?
Like all wildlife, pollinators are suffering from loss of habitat, climate change, and pesticide use. But unlike some wildlife (bears, elk, eagles, salmon…) they live all around us and we can all do things that will directly benefit them. Bee don’t need a lot of space, so planting flowers in your garden or local park really can make a difference. There is evidence that when there are more flowers, there are more bees, so you will have an impact.Continue reading
