Senior Care in Philadelphia PA
On June 15, join the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) in celebrating its eleventh National Nature Photography Day. This day was first celebrated back in 2006 and was created by the NANPA to promote nature photography and its role in conservation. Here are few ways to celebrate this day with an elderly loved one.
1. Get out the camera
Get outside and take some pictures. Go to a local park or wildlife refuge. If this is not possible, take photos around the elder’s house. Upload and print out the photos of plants, flowers, and critters and make a collage of favorite photos. Hang it on the wall to commemorate the day. Also share the favorite photos on social media so friends and family who live far away can also share in this day. Use #NaturePhotographyDay when posting your pics.
2. Enter a photo contest
The NANPA just happens to be having a photo contest to honor this day. It’s called the NANPA Nature Day Photo Contest. They have partnered with ViewBug. The Grand Prize Winner gets a new camera and free workshop. To find out more and how to enter, visit NANPA.
3. Find conservation projects in the local area
Chances are there are one or more conservation projects nearby. Usually a local college or university will have a program. Other times, there will be a program attached to a government park. Check their websites for ways to get involved, even if it is simply sharing their important work on social media. If possible, visit the local conservation project to learn more and get outside and get some fresh air. Also consider starting a local conservation project. Is there an area nearby where trash can be picked up?
4. Clean up the yard
Is there a tree or bush that needs trimming in an aging parent’s yard? Could they use some fresh planted flowers and a good spring clean-up? Celebrate this day by rounding up some volunteers to give the yard a makeover. Take before and after pictures of the transformation and post them on social media. An alternative is to spruce up an elder’s room with fresh plants and flowers. Invite the senior care provider to help with the care of the new plants and flowers so they thrive in their new environment.
