Broomstix Community--Do You Know About These Organizations?
It's almost Spring, a time to celebrate the return of the flowers, the awakening of the animals, and the renewal of the earth. Forest, farmland, the wilds, and the animals that depend on them need our help to maintain a clean environment and safe habitat (and humans need this as well!). Here are a few organizations working to make us all aware of the special balance between Nature and people everywhere:
Forever Forests is a group started in California by Gwydion Pendderwen, a Pagan folk singer and writer. He strove to help re-forest the areas of logged-over lands in California. Although Gwydion passed away in 1982, other Pagans have continued the work. Tens of thousands of trees have been planted since 1977.
Established by the late Steve Irwin, and continued by his family and partners around the world, Wildlife Warriors salvages habitats and provides education on an international level.
Keep America Beautiful has areas on their web site just for kids, with ideas on how to clean, conserve, and preserve nature, from sending e-cards instead of paper greetings, to getting involved with the Great American Clean-up. We can all do a little more to keep America Beautiful for you and the kids to come. Don't live in the USA? No problem--these ideas will work for just about everyone on the planet!
It's free, it's fun, and a click will provide food for animals in sanctuaries and shelters. The Animal Rescue Site provides a "fund food for animals" button.
