Earth Day is always April 22 but in reality all of April is Earth MONTH on Bainbridge, and Sustainable Bainbridge has a lively calendar of activities every year.

We learn more every day about how a healthy forest can mitigate global warming, reduce forest fires, and bring health and calmness in a busy world. For an example of this, read this New York Times article detailing how being outdoors can improve mental health and well being. Most of us knew this intuitively, but its great to see it confirmed.
