On April 22, 1970 millions of people around the world celebrated the first Earth Day.  Much has been achieved since then but more needs to be done.  You may have seen photographs from space that mark noticeable changes in the atmosphere over the last month.  NASA  has put together a variety of stay at home activities, including a visit with Jessica Meir on the International Space Station, to mark the occasion.  See more here https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2020/earthdayathome-with-nasa/  The annual Chesapeake Bay week begins on Sunday, April 19th.  Maryland Public Television has a number of shows celebrating the Bay and those who live and work around it.  See details here https://www.mpt.org/bayweek/  And, closer to home, think globally and act locally.  Take a bag, with gloves, on your next walk to collect trash you see along the way.  Limit the amount of fertilizer you use, if any, as spring gets underway.  And see the Resources section of the website for other ideas about how you can be a good steward of the environment.
