And explore the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Fish Migration Station website to learn more about the importance of fish passages, aquatic habitat conservation, and species profiles for numerous and diverse native North American fishes. According to a USFWS news release, you can also consider participating in the event online using the hashtag #WorldFishMigrationDay.

Then, Sunday, April 22 is Earth Day. Participate in outdoor activities across the country and reconnect with nature in your own way.
