Today is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, and for many of us, without access to beaches and parks, the celebration will occur indoors behind our computer screens. Talk about ironic.
But nature is still out there (hopefully enjoying a break from all our fossil fuel activities), and we still want to celebrate the planet and how to protect it. We’ve assembled a collection of stories and photos about our precious environment, from the threats we face to the natural wonders we cherish in Southwest Florida. And if you want to do more, click here for 24 hours of action to save the planet. As the organizers remind us, “Earth day is every day, and anywhere you are.”
