Earth Day has always been a clarion call to action especially under the urgent threat of climate change. In NYS, there is a draft Climate Leadership Community Protection Act open to the public for review and input. This initial draft scoping plan will shape the laws and actions of NYS to come in protecting the planet and our region from severe climate change. You can find the link to the draft plan on our Climate Change page, please take a look and put in your “2 cents” (comments) – if we all participate it can become a billion voice movement. Earth Day is also a day of recommitment and renewal, and in that spirit you will soon be seeing a new program sponsored by OE and new board members on saving our pollinating insects through promoting swaths of pollinator gardens across the Hudson Valley region.
