In addition, another equally important observation/celebration is Arbor Day, with a focus on tree filled landscapes and healthy ecosystems.

“Today is Earth Day. I don't want to end the day without an acknowledgment of the wonder that we actually live here. Okay, there is so much terror seeping around every corner. But there is also beauty, creativity, and life. Look around, we are blessed to be here. Really. Blessed.”
                                                    — Danté Stewart

"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts."
