In West Virginia, where Earth Day is every day, people are lending a “limb” to help deter forest degradation and fragmentation.

Despite the unfortunate weather yesterday along some of the north Atlantic coast, I still managed to enjoy Earth Day outside, spreading the word about monarch butterflies and other pollinators with my coworkers.
