Today is the first day of September. And this year, the first month of fall takes on a new meaning as it becomes the official month to celebrate wilderness!
The Northeast Wilderness Trust community likes to celebrate wilderness all year long, but now with a special dedication just announced by the White House, September has been designated as a month to raise awareness about the power, and vulnerability, of wild landscapes.
In yesterday’s announcement, President Biden wrote: “…our natural wonders are at risk. Now more than ever, we must come together to combat the climate crisis and unprecedented acceleration of species extinction, to protect and conserve our great outdoors before it is too late.”
Ways to Celebrate
Here are a few ways you can share the joy and beauty of wildlands this month!
We’ll continue to spread the vision of rewilding and share the values of wilderness all year round…and in September, we’ll be extra loud! Thank you for being a part of this wild adventure.
