REDUCE what resources you consume from the Earth,  asking; is this something I NEED or WANT, and can it  be reused or recycled?

Better:  

REUSE: or give away what you don't need anymore

Good:   

RECYCLE: what you can't (re)use

 



From Anne....      Jan 30/07

I have a great LOCAL activity for those who want to do community service at the Richmond Nature Park. They need volunteers for trail maintenance and invasive species removal that would be good for Pathfinders and Senior Branches and possibly Trefoil for those who like to prune and dig.
Please call Frances McCoubrey to let her know if you are coming so that she can be sure there will be enough tools and work for everyone. Days when she does the invasive species removal will vary so she needs to know how many people are planning on coming so she can adjust the activity to suit the numbers. It sounds like she might do an occasional Sunday for a couple of hours. Give her a call to check.

The park has problems with blackberry and holly bushes. I was there this past sunday with a group of young adults who are part of a new group called Reindeer Army Conservation Society who came to help because they wanted to "make a difference" at the local level. They are planning 2 days this weekend from 10 am - 2 pm to work on trail clearing  on the side of the park near the auto mall. Check out their website www.reindeerArmy.com for future developments.

Go for a walk and enjoy all the gifts of nature, they're free with no strings attached.

 

 

TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE
