Whether you’re on the naughty or nice lists, you’ve been getting gifts from Mother Nature this year. We hear she could use some elves to help her gifts coming for years.
During this season of holiday giving, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service would like to take time and reflect on the gifts we receive throughout the year from Mother Nature. Gifts of nature are treasures to behold and wonders to be thankful for.
Each day this week, we will highlight a gift from nature that we are grateful for:
- Open spaces,
- Healthy waters,
- Pest control and pollination,
- Storm protection,
- And of course, a sense of wonder.
There are many other gifts from nature, such as fire, energy sources and medicinal elements, to be thankful for. We hope you, too, will take a moment to reflect on what inspires you in the beauty of our natural surroundings.
