With our planet in climate crisis, we have plenty of ideas about things you can do to help the Earth – beginning with activities in our corner of the world, the beautiful lands of the Eastern Sierra, or “Payahuunadu,” The Land of Flowing Water, as the original Paiute inhabitants called this magical place. Also find inspiration in a testimonial of two living beings (a depressed human and a starving kitten) that rescued each other on Earth Day four years ago, and how that story encourages reflection on what we can do to “rescue” our planet. Happy reading…happy sharing!
