Earth Day is 51 years old on April 22nd. We can become a beneficial species… The goal is not just an environment of clean air and water and scenic beauty, but an environment of respect for ALL species.
According to Dr. Doug Tallamy, researcher and author, if we don’t modify the places in which we live, work, and play, to meet the needs of other species (insects, birds, amphibians, etc.), a majority of species native to America will disappear. It takes a village: something as simple as dedicating a percent of our home landscapes to native flowers, trees, and shrubs, could be akin to creating a “20 million acre national park.”
