This Sunday (April 22nd) is Earth Day. What could be a better time to celebrate the beauty and importance of the world’s precious ecosystems and its amazing wildlife than to actually experience nature’s wonder with a child in your life?
Take Defenders of Wildlife’s Earth Day Future Pledge! Promise to take your child, grandchild, niece, nephew or another young person in your life out to enjoy nature this weekend at a wildlife refuge, park or forest near you.
Founded 37 years ago, Earth Day has always been about celebrating the rich natural heritage that we’ll leave to future generations. That’s why it’s so important that we take the time to experience the joy of nature with the young people in our lives.
Get out there! Click here to take the pledge and find great wild places in your community.
Sadly, global climate change, out-of-control development and other factors are destroying many of America’s great wild places and threatening the spectacular wildlife that lives there.
It’s up to us to ensure that young people experience the wonder of nature… and learn why it’s so important to protect these natural treasures for future generations.
Pledge to take a child out to experience nature now and start planning your weekend.
With all the amazing things you can see and do in nature, this is one promise you’ll definitely want to keep!

(All the planets in the solar system are warming, so this author does not advocate the unscientific idea of a "global warming kit." Pollution is a disgusting problem, but not the cause of global warming. It is a useful gift kit, nevertheless.)
Earth Day is not just about buying "green." We need to think more about how our lifestyle affects the planet and what we can do to reduce our negative impact.
After you watch the video, take our pledge. Pledge to begin living a One Planet Life by reducing your environmental impact at home, at work, when you travel, and in your everyday activities. It could be as easy as buying a few less clothes or taking public transportation to work a few times a week.
When you sign the pledge, you will receive free Care2 resources via email to help you get started. Sign the pledge today!
Wishing you a peaceful and fun Earth Day!
