    Thank you not merely for highlighting these lovely nature blogs, but also for your thoroughly old-school assumption that Earth Day ought still to be primarily about nature and biodiversity. I don’t believe we’ll ever be sufficiently inspired to limit our numbers and our appetites unless and until we fall in love with the biosphere and its inhabitants.

  2. Deli Lanoux, Ed.D.

    As you said… Gorgeous! Absolutely stunning photos!

  3. John Todaro

    Wonderful idea… and blogs.

  4. Mikalee Byerman

    What a fabulous idea — giving us all some awesome blogs to check out this Earth Day weekend. Based on the pix alone, we have LOTS to look forward to!

    Thank you for sharing these blogs…

  5. Victoria C. Slotto

    Wonderful photography. Perhaps you’d like to check out some poetry blogs as well that create amazing word-paintings of Earth.

  6. Rosedale Gardens

    We’ll be having a celebration at our county Courthouse, Helen Keller Home and Tenn Valley Art Center in Tuscumbia, Al. If I can still get into my 1995 Earth Day T-shirt, I’ll have that on.

  7. Shock and Awe

    I always celebrate earth day…leave tvs, lights radios, and any other unecessary electronics I have on. Leave the shower and faucets running without using them and take a shower later. I’ll go green this year…use cold water instead of hot water

  8. betsywild

    Thanks for sharing those amazing sites! I started recycling 22 years ago after I attended an Earth Day event in Boston and have been getting greener by the year! check out my blog – greenwithbetsy.com.

    Hi Erica, Nice listing for Earth Day visits. I really enjoy nature and wildlife-oriented blogs. My little blog was begun a couple of years ago to share the views and information of the wildlife I see here in Cumberland County, Tennessee with others. I’ll be sure to visit those blogs you have shared here! Thanks for the information! Have a great Earth Day!

    I have earth day every day, live for and with the earth. I have gardened all my life, always trying to beautify somewhere. I stopped buying plants and planters a few years back, everything is recycled either from my own yard or someone elses……. Help yourself, help a friend, trade plants and ideas to make less waste
