Earth Day, this year, is April 22nd. If you’d like to read a brief history of Earth Day, please hunt down today’s transcript at kusp.org/landuse, where I have posted a link to the Earth Day Network website.
And if you’d like to participate, personally, in an Earth Day event, this year, check out that transcript! I have links to many such events, around the Bay, and a lot of them will be taking place tomorrow, Saturday, April 19th.
Save Our Shores, based in Santa Cruz, is sponsoring an Earth Day celebration in cooperation with the Marine Mammal Center and the Agriculture and Land-Based Training Association, or ALBA. This grand celebration is actually going to take place on the Triple-M Ranch, in the Elkhorn Slough watershed. Many listeners (and, of course, I count myself among them) are very much concerned with the preservation and protection of the marine environment in the Monterey Bay. Note that organizations that have that objective as their primary purpose are trying to do something on the land, to highlight what Earth Day is all about. In fact, how we use the land directly affects our marine environment, and I hope you’ll consider getting out in that environment, tomorrow, in celebration of Earth Day, and to help in a practical way in efforts to protect and preserve the natural environment, here in our spectacular Monterey Bay Region.
There are lots of opportunities to do that, so celebrate Earth Day, wherever you live around the Bay.
