Living beyond the Centuries, Greening up your "Carbon Footprint"
My husband and I have been marveling at the Majesty and longevity of many trees that live locally in our habitat. We also have been learning and experimenting with ways to replentish the wildlife and giving back to the earth for future generations. Do you realize that if you take some simple actions right now, you can make a difference centuries from now? Differences that will really matter, that will surpass even the people whom historians will eventually forget why their names even appear in their books?
If you have some spare time, a backyard and a bit of creativity, you have what may be the beginnings of finding new purpose for your life! You could find a new purpose that will not only fill your days with wonder and joy, but change our earthly environment into a better living environment. I have researched so many ways but today I will list two simple tasks that can begin your journey toward "immortality" very inexpensively, and yet the rewards will be so great to you personally, you may feel a bit guilty since your motivations began on behalf of others in generations to come.
One simple idea my husband and I came up with was to simply add a tree to our backyard that will grow and provide many wildlife habitats after we are long gone. We chose a Redwood Pine Tree for our yard, it is slow growing but will live for hundreds of years and even past the time our homes are here! We will not live to see it's full majesty yet future generations will enjoy the beauty of this tree and animals will be able to benefit from it's long life as well. You need to choose a tree that is suited for your environment, but know that in hundreds of years to come...even the environment and weather of your area will have changed.
The second purpose we have found for our property is to establish a wildlife sanctuary and provide a place for wildlife to have their young safely and replentish the immediate area.
*With all the new building of housing tracts in our area, the coyotes have come through, the wild raccoons and opposums have also joined in to ravage and deplete our smaller wildlife, such as wild rabbits, wild birds like pheasants and quail, and many other species. We are beginning a "hatch and release" program to provide a place for newborns and young to flourish and be prepared for their lives in the wild.
All you need is birdcages, or a rabbit hutch, 100 watt bulb heat lamps, and appropriate wildlife feed that can be found at local feedstores or even WalMart or a hardware store. You are on your way to providing a greener earth at any level of investment you choose! Over the next few months we can investigate these ideas together. Join me as I blog through this experience and comment to me any interests or new ideas you come up with. I like this concept of a "different kind of immortality". I only ask that you don't just read along with me, but you also find a way to contribute to our environment and share your experiences with me. I want to hear from you, your ideas matter!
