PCA celebrates Earth Day
With the winter months behind us and the sun continuing to shine, Earth Day on April 22, 2023, presents a great opportunity to get outdoors and make a positive impact on the environment. Earth Day, first introduced in 1970, is an annual celebration that honors the achievements of the environmental movement and raises awareness of the need to protect Earth’s natural resources for future generations. Whether it is volunteering in the community, helping plant trees at the local park, adding backyard planters or outdoor window boxes, Earth Day provides a wonderful chance to not only help the environment, but also benefit your well-being by being in nature.
