Once again, it is Earth Day! What do you do to help your environment?
Obviously the photograph above shows an act of carelessness…an orange cone thrown into a section of river, at a public county park, no less. I was disgusted, when I saw it. My grandchildren were with me, and when we peeked at the river offshoot, they asked me why it was there.
I am a firm believer in recycling. I recycle everything possible. I conserve electricity and water, gas and anything that can be conserved.
I teach my grandchildren to do the same, in fact I read them books on all of the above subjects, and some of those books are listed below. I live with my daughter and her family, and therefore, I read to my grandchildren every day.
Children’s books I have at home, and read to my four-year old and six-year old grandchildren, regarding nature and energy:
It’s Earth Day!
It is never too soon to teach our children and grandchildren why we need to protect the earth and protect our resources.
Plant a tree, plant flowers, make a compost heap, join a community garden, take part in activities with the Sierra Club, or at your local park.
