Every four years, Leap Day — February 29 — shows up on our calendars, generously giving us an extra 24 hours to use in our busy lives. How will you spend those free hours?

The Nature Conservancy would like to challenge you to use Leap Day to do something good for the environment. Volunteer for a stream cleanup with your kids or take a post-work walk to the local park. Or maybe you’ll use Leap Day to finally change all the light blubs in your house to efficient compact flourescent bulbs.

We want to hear from you: what will YOU do for nature with that extra day? Share your Leap Day plans in the comments below!

    I will be celebrating nature tonight at the LEAF roundtable in NYC. Can’t wait to hear how a summer in nature has changed the lives of some urban high school students!

    I’m planting today at my casa!
