Welcome to the Bham Now Nature Roundup April 21st Earth Day edition sponsored by the JSU Little River Canyon Center.

In honor of Earth Day 2017 – here are two of our favorite quotes about the earth and our responsibility to protect and preserve it by Kentuckian Wendell Berry and Alabamian George Washington Carver.

“The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility.  To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope.”  ~ Wendell Berry 

“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.” ~ George Washington Carver

Become an advocate for nature. Celebrate and enjoy Earth Day this weekend.

Enjoy!
