April HM Mini Goal – Have an Outdoor Adventure

One whole quarter of ‘doing what we said we would do’ for our 2024 HM Mini Goal Program is complete! Isn’t it fulfilling to have accomplished three fun goals this year? In March, our goal was to plant something, and we loved seeing your green thumbs in action! From planting trees in your backyards, to planting seedlings across our offices, to herb and vegetable gardens, you really showed up to celebrate spring. Keep scrolling to see some of our photo submissions of our plantings across the country. It’ll be rewarding to see their growth in the summertime!

Our April HM Mini Goal is to have an outdoor adventure!

This month we get to explore outdoors—whether attempting a difficult trail or challenging climb, or simply venturing to a scenic outlook you’ve been meaning to visit. You can check out the maps of your local state parks and pick a new trail, go for a climb in the mountains or simply go for a bike ride. You could also try something new—maybe paddle boarding, kayaking or mountain biking. Changing our environment and spending quality time in nature soaking in the sunshine, fresh air, water, open skies and trees restores us in a way few things can. And there’s no reason to go it alone—plan a group activity with family or friends to enjoy nature’s benefits together.

After you’ve accomplished April’s goal, don’t forget to tag #hmminigoals on your social media channels, and email your photos to minigoals@hughesmarino.com. We’ll share photos of all your outdoor adventures throughout the month on social media. We can’t wait to be inspired by nature through all the outdoor treks and explorations we see this month!

As promised, here are some of the planting submission photos we received throughout March!
