Of course we would love to be able to all be together and celebrate like we have in the past (we miss in-person Earth Day Staunton!), but there are some equally wonderful events to celebrate this year!

It might be stating the obvious, but one of the most impactful ways to celebrate Mother Earth is to protect land by placing it into a Conservation Easement. It is truly the gift that keeps on giving! And giving! And giving!
