Before I unlock a series of posts dedicated to Iceland next week, let’s take a look at our own backyard. My brother’s girlfriend helped launch the Natural Areas Conservancy, a new non-profit formed to protect and restore New York City’s 10,000 acres of forests and wetlands. These natural areas are a vital resource for all New Yorkers, improving air quality, buffering communities from storms and flooding, and providing incredible recreation opportunities. With the holidays upon us, I’m mentioning this important and natural gift. Please consider supporting the work of the Natural Areas Conservancy by making any amount of donation. No amount is too small! Donate and get more information right here.
