Happy Earth Day -- Old Growth Redwoods

Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day to everyone! This year marks the 40th anniversary of this great holiday that helped to make conservation an everyday word in American households. When trying to decide what to post for this occasion, I couldn't think of anything better than some old growth coast redwoods. Being with these huge trees (the tallest species in the world) can't help but make you think of the stories of Mother Earth and her nuturing, life-giving trees.

Today is a great day to bike to work, flip off those extra lights your not using, turn down the thermostat, or remember to take those canvas bags with you into the store this time. For more ideas on what you can do to celebrate our precious planet, stop on by The Nature Conservancy's Earth Day 2010 page. Or for a little extra inspiration from nature's beauty, head on over to the Conservation International Blog to check out the iLCP's Top 40 Nature Photographs.

Redwoods for Earth Day


  1. Magnificent - wow !
    It must be a great feeling to be in the middle of this forest :)

  2. Thanks, Pescalune! This is one of those truly magical places where you can really feel the forest around you, and you just have to be in awe of its scale and age.
