Tripping through Nature with Gwen Frostic By Ann Forster

literally created these books—the art, the poetry, even the paper itself. The one I am reading now is named Beyond Time. The

opening page resonated with me because we have just hosted some birding friends from Washington State whose comments

reminded me to appreciate what we still have. Here is her introductory poem:

Forty years after the first Earth Day, climate change is the greatest challenge of our time. It also
presents the greatest opportunity—an unprecedented opportunity to build a healthy, prosperous,
clean-energy economy now and for the future. Earth Day 2010 can be a turning point to advance
climate policy, energy efficiency, renewable energy and green jobs. And Earth Day can begin with
our own personal commitments to reuse, recycle, and reduce all forms of waste from plastic bottles
to grocery bags and energy consumption. Local Earth Day Celebrations will be on April 22 and 24.
