Earth Day Every Day
"Preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, it's the only home we've ever known." -Carl Sagan.
Earth Day is a good reminder that we are the stewards of this planet. It is our responsibility to take care of it. Climate change can feel overwhelming, but we have some great activities for you to participate in and steps you can take to make your own impact.
"The natural world is the larger sacred community to which we belong. To be alienated from this community is to become destitute in all that makes us human. To damage this community is to diminish our own existence." -Thomas Berry.
