Endangered Species Day presents an opportunity for people of all ages to learn about the importance of protecting endangered species and the everyday actions they can take to help protect them. Started in 2006 by the United States Congress, Endangered Species Day is a celebration of the nation's wildlife and wild places. Every year on the third Friday in May (and throughout the month), zoos, aquariums, parks, botanic gardens, wildlife refuges, museums, schools, community centers, conservation groups and other organizations throughout the country hold  tours, special speaker presentations, exhibits, children's activities and more to celebrate Endangered Species Day.

Social Justice Small Group
Our next Social Justice Small Group meeting will be on Sunday, May 19th, from 7 to 8:30 pm, in the Fireside Room. During our April meeting the group chose two areas of focus to explore further: 1) Transgender and LGBTQIA human rights; and 2) expanding services to our houseless and food insecure Food Pantry patrons. At our next meeting we will discuss possible educational events to help us better understand and support our Transgender community. Feel free to bring a dessert to share during our meeting. All are welcome.
