Mother’s Day 2021 is on Sunday, May 9. I hope all of you Moms out there are able to enjoy a fun and relaxing Mother’s Day with family and friends. For some fun things to do, check out “Mother’s Day Activities and Events in Reno and Sparks”. After pretty much everything being canceled last year, at least some activities are back for 2021.

“Mother’s Day Brunch and Dining in Reno and Sparks” is also back. Quite a few of the venues that were closed last year are back and offering special treats for Mother’s Day dining.

Earth Day celebrations are still not back from the coronavirus crisis. The annual Reno Earth Day celebration has been scrubbed for 2021, along with Truckee Meadows Earth Day and Tahoe Truckee Earth Day.

The last event standing is at South Lake Tahoe, which is now designated South Tahoe Earth Week. Earth Day will be celebrated with daily activities from April 19 through 25, 2021. More information is available from my Earth Day article.

Here’s a way to both help restore a new Reno park and celebrate Earth Day. The Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation (TMPF) is inviting volunteers to join in planting 750 native plant species at a new nature study area and wetland located in east Reno. It’s part of the process of repurposing the old Rosewood Lakes Golf Course.

The event is on Saturday, April 24, 2021, starting at 8 a.m. and going till noon. It’s going to be an exciting, Covid safe, family-friendly and earth-friendly activity. Bring appropriate clothes for outdoors work, sun protection, gardening gloves, water, and your friends to make the most of it.

The new nature study area is at 6800 Pembroke Drive in Reno, near the Southeast Connector (Veterans Parkway). Go online to volunteer for Spring Plantapalooza.
