This has been a big week – Earth Day and Arbor Day all at once.

The first Arbor Day was held in Spain in 1805. Today, it is celebrated all over the world, but on different dates, as is Earth Day. I guess the easiest thing to do is plant a tree, but (just to put in my 2 cents) plant one that’s native to your area, so it has a chance to survive! Read more about both occasions at my website.

This Earth Day, I want to bring your attention to a couple of organizations that work tirelessly on behalf of our environment:  EcoKids, Canada’s leading environmental education program for children, providing activities and resources for both K-8 students and teachers, and

the NRDC, who work tirelessly to fight against the relentless assault of the environment by big business. They enlist anyone who’s interested to send petitions, emails and phone calls, and help financially. AKA Biogems.
