Have you heard of Wildsight? Wildsight Golden is a local non-profit environmental organization that has been active since the 1990s working to maintain biodiversity and a healthy community.
Wildsight Golden’s current activities include the Columbia Wetlands Waterbird Survey, Town of Golden Invasive Plant Program, and a popular summer nature day camp for kids called GETWILD! Wildsight Golden participates in land use planning and hosts regular environmental presentations and community activities.
Every year, Wildsight Golden celebrates Earth Day with a clean-up and potluck at Reflection Lake. Anyone who would like to join can meet at 5 p.m. at the Reflection Lake Wildlife Viewing Area. Wildsight will supply garbage bags, drinks, and wash water. Bring some food to share and your own cutlery/dishes. Camp chairs and work gloves are optional. There will also be opportunities to birdwatch with local experts. Contact Leslie Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Earth Day is the most celebrated environmental event in the world. Each year, more than six million Canadians join one billion people from 170 countries, staging events and projects to address environmental issues. But Earth Day is not only about events, it’s also about taking individual action. There’s so much you can do. It’s as simple as reduce, reuse, recycle. Clean up and help restore a degraded area; share your nature knowledge with others; advocate to decision makers on an issue (such as environmental degradation caused by growth in unregulated recreational activities in our backcountry).
We hope you have a happy Earth Day and are able to celebrate this beautiful place we call home.
