Earth Day Every Day!
WLT Board Member, Peter DiCorpo, with helpers, working at Sugar Hill Farm on a planting project with Favors.
Everyday is Earth Day. Everyday, we use the many resources provided by the natural world . We are able to breathe clean air filtered through our leafy tree canopies; we can drink clean water purified by layers of leaves and soil; everyday we can eat fresh food grown in the earth; everyday we can be shaded by our forests and walk in wonder and solitude. Everyday all of us at Westchester Land Trust say thank you to those who support our efforts to protect the Earth and these resources.
It is not by chance that our spring appeal occurs around Earth Day, April 22. We hope you will give a financial donation to help fund our land protection work, our programs that inform citizens about native plants and watershed protection, our farmer landowner match efforts that help create opportunities for farmers and provide locally grown food. You can make a donation here or by mail.
Your financial support is important and we encourage you to give of your time as well. WLT sponsors Volunteer Days at our headquarters, Sugar Hill Farm, when you can help farm for the Westchester Food Bank. Our Wildflowers-Native Plant Series continues April 20 and April 27 demonstrating how using native plantings in your home garden helps control invasive plant and insect species. Make a commitment to get out and work and learn how to take care of this precious resource we call our Earth. It’s an investment that gives back, now and forever.
