Earth Day 2019 officially falls on Monday, April 22, but every day is a good day to celebrate the environment. Among the best sources for information on the environment and sustainability are the U.S. and Georgia state governments.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency offers these resources on sustainability and greener living. You can learn to recycle, achieve better fuel economy, and choose greener products to consume. Learn more about how to live a sustainable lifestyle from the Centers for Disease Control.
Enjoying nature is a great way to celebrate the environment. One option is through visiting our national forests. National forests easy to visit from south Georgia include the Osceola National Forest and the Apalachicola National Forest, both in north Florida, and the Chattahoochee-Oconoee National Forests in north Georgia. Explore Georgia further by visiting our many state parks, including nearby Reed Bingham State Park near Adel.
From the Georgia Department of Natural Resources to the U.S. National Wildlife Refuge System, the government offers great resources for helping to appreciate our environment. See more resources about the environment at the government documents display case, 2nd floor Reference in Odum Library.
