Happy World Water Day!

Water is a powerful element, causing both destruction while  facilitating life. If you  have regular access to clean drinking, count yourself lucky, because you are among the few in the world who can make that claim. To appreciate water, go through your regular routine today, and think about all the times you turn on the tap, run the shower, start the dishwasher or clothes washer, water the plants, give your dog a bath, any task that requires water. Even your electricity could have required water to be generated. We love you water! To read more about World Water Day, please click the link below.

New Year’s Resolutions for the Environment!

This past year has been full of crucial steps toward protecting the environment…and challenges to protecting natural spaces and natural resources. From progressive strides such as the Paris Agreement, to obstacles like the pipeline that was almost erected at Standing Rock in North Dakota, 2016 has been a roller coaster of ride for those concerned with the environment, which is to say is has been an average year for those concerned with the environment. In that same vein, 2017 promises to be no different. Please read the article written by renowned teacher, writer and environmentalist, Donella H. Dana Meadows twenty-four years ago for tips on how we environmentalists can stay on our toes, ever-vigilant for the environmental movement.
