Good afternoon everyone –
Many things are happening around us this year such as the pandemic, but I would like to remind everyone here in the greater Fresno area, where we experienced the largest local wildfire in the history of California last year in our local mountains, that our environment is still one of our most critical concerns. We are lucky to have an incredibly diverse curriculum here at Reedley, including our Natural Resources team that provides a unique perspective to students on our mountains and rivers, as well as the sensitive ecosystems that exist within various climates and specific environmental conditions. Please join me today in celebrating Earth Day, where we can all pause and appreciate the natural wonders around us, including the Kings River and our national parks, and understand our part in helping bring balance back to our world to protect our overall climate and environment for future generations.
As a biologist and someone who participated in the first Earth Day in 1970, I maintain an interest in helping people understand their impact on our fragile world, so join me today in reflecting on what we can all do to better protect our environment, both for ourselves and for future generations.
