Play Spring Bingo!


Published May 4, 2020 at 2:41 p.m.

Looking for a socially distant way to get outdoors, while still feeling like they’re part of a community. Consider Vermont Land Trust's Backyard Bingo, hand-drawn by ecologist Allaire Diamond. This bingo board sends you out to search for varied items including “poop,” a “deciduous leaf from last year,” and “something you lost.” It manages to be both simple enough for a toddler and interesting enough to capture the attention of a parent suffering from cabin fever. Once you've achieved bingo, you can share your photos via email or by posting on social media with the hashtag #StayGroundedVT.
