Conservation Tip: Protect our Trees!


On April 22, 1970, 20 million people across America celebrated the first Earth Day. Today, Earth day is being celebrated across the globe. What started as a day of national environmental recognition has evolved into a world-wide campaign to protect our global environment. You can help protect the environment by saving our trees!

Not only are forests beautiful, but are necessary for fuel, food, raw materials, medicine and most importantly oxygen. One of the greatest threats to forests is fire – which can destroy not only the lives and homes of plants and animals, but also those of the people who live in nearby communities.

Here are ways you can help!

  • Buy recycled paper whenever possible
  • Pack your lunch in a lunch pail rather than a brown paper bag
  • Don’t waste paper – use both sides of a sheet
  • Recycle paper
