Earth Day

Today is Earth Day. Another day to post really cool pictures of how we enjoy Mother Earth but this year is different for me. I’ve changed for the better. I’ve recognized the need to get the younger generation on board. Too many kids, teenagers and even adults (I’m guilty too), spend too much time on their electronic devices and not outside or preserving nature. It’s easy to get caught up in every day life but we really need to stop and be aware of our future and planet earth’s future. I’m not going to say I’m the go-to person on this matter but I do believe climate change is real and happening and my children may not get to enjoy those cold smoke ski days like I have grown up experiencing. The only place to start is within ourselves. A New Years Resolution (in April) if you will, to preserve my playground and educate the upcoming generation. Thank you Mother Earth, we’re on your side.

Check out City Kids. They are providing enriching life experiences for underserved D.C. children through outdoor experiences. I met them at SHIFTjh conservation festival this past fall.
