Earth Week Recap

This year Earth Day looked a little different. There weren’t large groups gathered to plant trees, remove invasive species, or collect garbage. Rather families and individuals celebrated from their homes. Skagit Land Trust hosted a daily stewardship challenge, encouraging people to “Steward in Place”. Several families sent in photos of themselves removing invasive plants from their own backyards! At the Trust we are so excited to hear about all of the habitat improvements that you are working on. Even though Earth Day has passed, stewarding in place can continue. At Skagit Land Trust, Earth Day is every day. Please feel free to review the seven challenges from Earth Week in addition to the Stewarding in Place article for even more ideas on how to participate in stewardship from home. The Land Trust also asked our members what Earth Day means to them. Several people sent in beautiful stories about their connection to the environment. We have compiled all of the responses into a short video for your enjoyment. The video can be viewed by clicking here.
