Spring is an important time for Nature; a time of birth and renewal. We too, want to share in this rebirth and seek the healing that Nature can bring, with people going out in droves to explore state parks and private land trusts. Unfortunately many are bringing their dogs, and unleashing them. During Fairfield Earthday’s Webinar on the Legislative Session Lori Brown of Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) asked for people to leave their dogs at home in order to protect nesting birds and other species.
On the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we need to recommit to the spirit and energy of the original Earth Day as we fight to protect the planet and each other from the environmental crises we are facing today.
We hope on Friday you go out and hug a tree. Once you find that perfect tree, hold on tight and don’t let go!
