World Environment Day

Today is World Environment Day, and the theme to this year is, “Connecting People to Nature”. Yes, too often we are cooped up in our homes, or offices, not really getting outdoors to enjoy all that surrounds us. Living in the Central Valley, I do understand wanting to be indoors come the summer, as we often have those hundred degree days, but lately we have just had beautiful weather. If you are not wanting to check out a new trail, or go to the river, what about a walk in the park, or maybe an outdoor sport? The world really is a beautiful place and we do not do enough to enjoy the splendor of it.

So, what exactly is World Environment Day you might be wondering. According to the website of the same name it is, “the biggest annual event for positive environmental action and takes place every June 5”. The site goes on to say that this year’s host country is Canada, and that a different country is picked every year. I like this, another day to show our appreciation to the earth. I hope these traditions continue and grow, as we only have one planet earth!
