Why Earth Day? Simply answered, to draw attention to the condition of the environment!
From space the earth has been described as a ”sparkling blue and white gem”, both beautiful and fragile. Earth Day is a purposeful opportunity to pause, reflect, and renew a deeper connection with our unique home. And to share that appreciation with our children!
How can you celebrate? You may not be able to physically attend Earth Day fairs, but how about a virtual fair? Why not explore as a family NCW libraries resources and learn the significance of climate change, how to reduce waste, how humans impact the environment, and how beautiful life on earth is.
