As people across the United States are adjusting to new schedules and to working and learning from home, we want to help soothe some of the angst we are all feeling during the current global health crisis. The current state of our health, alongside our family members, friends, and neighbors is a top priority and is causing anxiety for so many of us. We believe that nature nurtures us – emotionally, physically, and mentally and during times like these, it can be more important than ever to turn to nature for some relief.
Environment Maryland and Environment Missouri are working together to facilitate conversations about our environment and provide activities for adults and young adults across the nation. Let us introduce Conservation Conversations!
We will be holding a weekly webinar on Thursdays starting at 7:00pm EST based on a different environmental theme. This week we will be discussing Nature in Your Neighborhood. Our featured guest is Kristen Bontrager, native plant ecologist, who will provide information on native plants including their ability to alleviate stormwater issues, improve soil health, and prove critical habitat for pollinators. She’ll also give you tips and tricks to plant some in your yard, and she’ll teach us how to identify native plants in our communities. Have questions about native plants? We’ll save time after Kristen’s talk to answer them!
You can RSVP to our Facebook event here. Grab a drink, cocktail, tea, or water, and sit down with us to join in the conversation! We hope to see you all there.
Login info will be shared in the event and here tomorrow prior to the conversation!
