Delray Beach- Celebrating Earth Day

 

Today is a day for celebrating this great planet on which we live.  And, every day that I am lucky enough to walk along our beach in Delray Beach makes me appreciate how beautiful Mother Nature is.

If we are ever to halt climate change and conserve land, water, and other resources, not to mention reduce animal suffering, we must celebrate Earth Day every day - at every meal.
Ingrid Newkirk

Celebrating earth means also celebrating all of the animals on it.  This week there was a possum on a neighbor’s back fence driving the neighbor’s dog nuts. And in our yard, one of our squirrels came by for breakfast.  Larry loves leaving dried corn out for the squirrels.

Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean. John Muir

Good morning, Kathy --- while designating the day is important, the words of Ingrid Newkirk certainly ring true as that's the true goal of embracing the spirit of Earth Day.   The FLW quote has always been a favorite of mine.

Kathy,

Love your possum and squirrel picture.  We all should celebrate Earth day, every day, and like you we are thankful for our environment, and the people who keep it clean!  A

Beautiful post for Earth Day (or any day) Kathy!  This morning while we were on our hike we stopped many times to appreciate the incredible surroundings of our nature preserve in our backyard.  And we say 'thank you to the 3 ladies that started back in the 60's for saving the land from development - 30+ acres. One lady is still living at age 94 and still attends 3 or 4 meetings a week. That is dedication to ones cause!!

Hi James Dray I loved playing in the mud when I was a little girl!!! We have overcast skies today but so far, no rain. 

Dorie Dillard what a wonderful way to celebrate Earth Day and make Canyon Creek even more beautiful.

Hi Wayne Martin I didn't get in much beach walking time today...had a consultation this morning. 

Joe Pryor thank you for helping our beaches.  Safe trip home and see you when you return.

Gabe Sanders you're not kidding.  We have to take care of it for those who come behind us. 

Doug Dawes the other day when driving down a street, I saw a business owner tossing a huge stack of magazines in the trash. Why not just recycle them.!

Donald Urschalitz it irks me to see any progress that may be made, thrown away. 

I agree Michael Jacobs we have to take seriously the need to protect our earth, and do it every day.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I discovered that possums move every few days.  The squirrels, however, are here for their 3 meals a day!

Scott Godzyk I could not tell you what I've found on our beaches...disgusting. 

Brian England Thank you, and I wish you a beautiful weekend as well.  Enjoy your morning hikes.

Wow Anna Banana Kruchten, CRS that's remarkable.  And yes, thanks to all of those who've donated land to be preserved or worked hard to preserve!!!

Thank you Myrl Jeffcoat I missed a funny photo of him lounging (like a couch potato) while eating the corn.  And, thank you for the feature in your group!!

Kathy the weather kind of put a damper on the Earth Day events around here.  Hope you fared better where you are.

Hi Kathy - I think the animals around here know it's Earth Day - Lonesome Sam, our solitary pelican returned from his winter digs this morning, the herons and geese are nesting, we saw a couple of eagles and the rabbits are out in force. Our enjoyment of them depends on our good stewardship of our environment.

As an individual, I do my best to honor Mother Earth by recycling just about everything.  (My recycle can is so much larger and more full than my trash can.)  I drive a fuel efficient car, turn lights out in rooms I'm leaving.  You get the drift. 

The thing that annoys me more than anything are the preachy folks who want everyone else to change while they jet set, recyle squat, drive gas guzzlers, etc.  We all need to put our money where our mouthes are on protecting this beautiful planet....and the critters on it.
