Celebrate Earth Day today! Look at our calendar in the months ahead for specific community events across the state…or plan your own celebration, habitat restoration or school festivity!
From the EarthDay.Org –
Nature’s gift to our planet are the millions of species that we know and love, and many more that we have still to discover. Unfortunately, human beings have irrevocably altered the balance of nature and the world is facing a mass extinction of species at the greatest rate of extinction since we lost the dinosaurs more than 60 million years ago.. But unlike the fate of the dinosaurs, the rapid extinction of species in our world is the result of human development. The causes are many: climate change, deforestation, habitat loss, pollution, unsustainable agriculture, and pesticides to name a few, and the impacts are far reaching. If we do not act now, extinction may be our most enduring legacy.
The good news is that if we take action, we can stop extinction.Location
Parks, schools and business places around the World!
