Thank you for supporting me as a volunteer!
On Saturday, April 21, I’ll be volunteering to help The Nature Conservancy host a Picnic for the Planet at East Rock Park the end of the Rock-to-Rock ride. This global initiative will raise awareness of nature’s role in feeding us and how we, in turn, can protect nature. Thousands of people Picnicked for the Planet last Earth Day at more than 600 picnics in all seven continents, including Antarctica!
The Nature Conservancy in Connecticut will host the state’s largest Picnic at the culmination of the annual Rock to Rock bicycle ride in New Haven. As a volunteer, I’ll be spreading the word about sustainable food choices, teaching others how they can make a difference and participating in a clean-up of the site after the event.
Your donation will help support the Conservancy’s Long Island Sound Program, which helps protect one of our area’s greatest natural resources. In addition to providing a home for many of the fish and shellfish we eat, the Sound brings $8.91 billion to the local economy and houses more than 21 million people within 50 miles of its shore.
I’m volunteering on Earth Day weekend because I believe our choices about food make an impact on the environment, and that we need to care for valuable natural resources like the Sound. Please consider making a donation!
Thanks to the generosity of our team captain, all donations to Team Nature Conservancy Rocks! will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000. Donate today and have twice the impact!
Thank you for your support, and don’t forget to forward this to anyone who you think may wish to donate, too!
