Earth Calendar for March 2nd and 3rd
Last week marked the celebration of World Wetlands Day. Wetlands come in many forms and go by many ways. Wetlands are some of the most important resources for migratory birds such as ducks, geese, and sandhill cranes. They also support moose, black bears, lynx and other wildlife. Cranberries and blueberries also grow in bogs in the northern United States. Despite their many benefits, the United States looses about 60,000 acres of wetlands each year. Help preserve and monitor wetlands near you by visiting the EPA's website.
On Our Calendar
On March 13th and March 28th, Imago Earth Center presents the second session of the popular Ecology on Tap series, Voluntary Simplicity. The discussions will look at a way of life that reflect values, not just the norms of our culture. The discussions will take place at Park+Vine. Please pre-register to receive reading materials in advance. Register online at www.eventbrite.com or by calling (513) 921-5124.
