It is Day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas Spirit for Mother Nature.
Money can be tight, particularly around this time of year, so why not give the gift of volunteering!
Do some research on the environmental organizations that interest you, and see what their requirements or limitations are for volunteers. Some organizations may allow families, some might have age restrictions. My mother does a lot of volunteer work, but when she first started out, she admitted that she wanted someone to go along with her the first couple of times. Do you know someone like that? If so, create a Volunteer Gift Certificate – that says you will accompany them to a volunteer opportunity of their choice.
To recap, and in the 12 Days of Christmas Spirit for Mother Nature, I have added the names of the National, Regional and Local organizations that you can consider donating too, or volunteering with.

and something you can do on your own
Merry Christmas and Happy Hiking!
