NFBPWC Earth Day Celebration



Fireflies: Jewels of the Night

by Candace Fallon, Senior Conservation Biologist


On Friday, April 22, NFBPWC hosted a special National Friday Connections event featuring the Environment & Sustainable Development (ESD) Committee. We shared tips and ideas on small daily actions we can all take to safeguard our environment together.

The discussion was powerful. We learned about how to sustainably manage water, energy, food waste, pollinators, and clothing.


On April 24, 2021, NFBPWC hosted its inaugural Earth Day Summit to raise awareness on the impact of the environment on our daily lives, including how seemingly distant events, such as climate and weather-related disasters, are in fact closely related to the choices we make as individuals and as a group.

Highlighting the interdependencies among land, water, air, and our daily actions, the event featured the stories of five professional women – each from different career paths and locations around the country, working together to make the communities they belong to more sustainable, equitable, and resilient.

Connect the dots between the environment and the choices we all make everyday as you re-live Earth Day 2021!
