Senior Earth Day Celebrations
It's Earth Day! If you haven't seen our earlier email about some ways to celebrate, check that out by clicking here! In celebration of the worldwide holiday, let's take a trip down memory lane and virtually visit some places that will certainly benefit from all of us pitching in and being environmentally conscious. Take a few trips below and find some ways to celebrate the day as well.
Our first venture is to Italy. Not everywhere feels the impact of climate change equally, but the beauty of Venice could be lost due to rising sea water. Take a virtual trip there to see exactly what you could be saving when you celebrate Earth Day!
Another spot impacted drastically by climate change are many coral reefs, including, most notably, the Great Barrier Reef. Take a virtual trip to the Coral Reefs of Palau to witness the beauty and abundant wildlife that call the reefs home.
The Earth provides our lives with so much opportunity to grow and enjoy the splendors it provides. Take at today at the very least and celebrate life and give back to the health of Earth. Loving Earth and celebrating it doesn't end with us, as what we do today and moving forward impacts future generations. If you are looking for some more ways to celebrate the day, check out the links below and participate locally! Lastly, remember that loving the Earth can take place each and every day and isn't restricted to just April 22nd.

Happy Earth Day!
