Earth Care Update

Thinking Green


Earth Day was April 22, 2020 and it is the 50th anniversary of a day we celebrate and concentrate on environmental protection along with 190+ other nations around the world.  What has happened in the last 50 years?  By the end of 1970, the first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered  Species Acts.  Earth Day united thousands of environmental groups, now focused on global warming and clean energy, among the many dire issues the world faces today.
Progress, yes. Task finished?  No, there is so much more to do to repair our damaged planet.  In wealthy nations, the air, water and land are cleaner than they were 50 years ago; the challenge is to make that true for everyone and everything.  Will 7.8 billion people living on this earth care enough to be good stewards?  Educate yourself on what you can do, remembering the 3 R’s.  Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

Hummingbirds are back in our area!  Put your feeders out now to help these little travelers on their way north.  Later arrivals will be the ones who nest locally.  Feeder solution does not need red food coloring.  Mix 1 part sugar to 4 parts water; boil briefly to keep the sugar suspended in solution; cool and store in your refrigerator.  Keep your feeders clean and fresh, especially in hot weather.  Enjoy watching these marvelous birds!
