Welcome to the Nature and Environment Blog

Attention nature lovers: I'm pleased to announce the launch of our Nature, Environment and Community blog. No doubt we'll have lots to talk about with the current worldwide spotlight on all things green.

In addition to environmental hot topics like pollution and the latest findings on global warming, this blog will contain posts about wildlife, endangered species, wilderness, national parks, land stewardship, recycling and more. Mother Nature is quite prolific at providing interesting topics of conversation!  

Not to be overlooked is the community portion of this category. A community whose members understand the value of sustainability is one of our environment's greatest allies. These communities can pool their resources and work together to achieve results that no individual could generate alone.

For homework, I'm assigning a quick history lesson. The Worldwatch Institute has compiled an excellent timeline highlighting the many environmental milestones of recent decades.
