Editor's Note: April 22 is Earth Day, as it has been for over 40 years. But why limit it to just one day? Join us here on Nature Notes for the next 10 days for a new environmentally-friendly tip from Karen Shragg, naturalist and director of Wood Lake Nature Center.
Reduce and consolidate trips and use your bike when you can. Work with your city to encourage bicycling and teach your kids safe bicycling practices. This reduces the wasting of natural resources and carbon footprints.
