Earth Day 2017’s Campaign is Environmental & Climate Literacy
Education is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.
Environmental and climate literacy is the engine not only for creating green voters and advancing environmental and climate laws and policies but also for accelerating green technologies and jobs.

Awareness of climate means not chopping down trees when they are still very small.

Hello Ann,
There is a lot of trees being cut where I live and it worries me.
Thank you for your comment on my blog post about wildflowers. To answer your question. Each Mayapple plant has only one or two leaves, but they are all connected by their root system. Like a vine that may crawl along the ground and take root at each set of leaves, Mayapples are like an underground vine that shows only its leaves above ground. Each leaf has enough roots to live by itself, and it will begin to put out roots that will put leaves above ground and so create new plants.
Hope you have a beautiful week-end!
