    There are many places to travel within driving distance so it's not really difficult to drive vs. flying. The time that would be spent waiting at an airport can be used to drive so it doesn't really increase the total travel time.

    With everything going on in my personal life I still made time to complete this challenge that taught me a lot. My goal is to definitely practice all that I learned

    Wise words to live by as we close out Earth Month 2023🏜️🌵☀️🌎
    Climate & Ecosystems Support Local Pollinators
    Why is it important to take care of pollinators? Do you have a favorite pollinator?

    All of seeded plants need to be pollinated and pollination results in larger, more flavorful fruits and higher crop yields, which we all need to survive. Without pollinators, our ecosystems wouldn't survive.

    I enjoyed the water clean up projects this month with Team ECOS. It gave us a chance to work together towards a common goal and also do something worthwhile to help the environment. I am looking forward to more volunteer opportunities in the future and would like to see us work at a food pantry.

    The solar panels on my home save a great deal of energy, but we also focus on trying to use less than we generate. I also learned ways we can reduce water use as well.
    Climate & Ecosystems Watch a Documentary About Climate Change or Nature

    I had the opportunity to do two water cleanups (riverbed and ocean) during Earth Month and it was eye opening to see the amount of microplastic that is harming our water and food supply. A Plastic Ocean shows how much plastic is affecting the environment and the need for immediate change.
