National Day of Unplugging: Lunch and Learn
Friday, March 6, 2020
Pause and relearn what life was before there was "an app for that." According to nationaldayofunplugging.com, March 6 is a time to commit to "a 24-hour global respite from technology. It highlights the value of disconnecting from digital devices to connect with ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities in real time." It is no secret that there has been a drastic increase in personal electronic use. U.S. consumers average five hours a day on a mobile device. And new data shows the average smartphone user checks their device 63 time a day.
To show our support, we are offering a series of free programs at McFarland Park to help fill your time and mind during some of the most common times of day that we "plug in."
Lunch and Learn, 12-1pm: A lunch hour is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors and learn something new. Come enjoy a discussion about nature unplugged. Please bring a sack lunch to enjoy at the park -- we'll be outdoors if weather permits.
