LOVE YOUR RIVER
Even though they are still young, Pam and Lico are taking an active part in protecting the environment.
If each of us spends only one hour a month working toward a better environment in our community, together we can shape a cleaner world for our children, and Pam and Lico's children.
We every one of us can be influential ambassadors for a healthy environment in our homes, in our neighborhoods, in our country, and in our world.
- Observe the world around you. Spend a few minutes each day outside looking and listening. These can be moments of peace and enjoyment.
- Encourage your church or civic group to plan and carry out an environmental project. Clean up a stream, organize recycling, or plant trees. Publicize your efforts as an inspiration to others.
- Get involved with land-use planning in your community. State law requires public participation when plans in coastal counties and towns are updated every five years. Find out when your plan will be revised, and make your pitch for protection of the environment.
- Tell your elected officials you want sensible environmental regulations. Contrary to what most folks believe, many industries gain not lose profits when they retool for the environment.
- Learn more about the environment. Join an environmental group.
Most environmental efforts begin with private citizens like you and me who see a need and take action. Become one of Nature's Caretakers. You can make a difference!
