Taking Part in the Environmental Action Day

Last Saturday, I, along with nearly 700 other people, attended a really fascinating event in my hometown of Bedford, New York.  It was the Environmental Action Day held at Fox Lane High School, organized by Bedford 2020.  The group was actually formed in 2009 and this was their first major event, rallying residents to get involved in the town’s efforts to preserve natural resources.  Throughout this daylong program, there were many educational speeches, workshops, and demonstrations from local businesses and personalities.  After this successful pilot program in Bedford, Environmental Action Day has plans to introduce themselves to other communities in Northern Westchester County.  Events such as this one are so very important for educating the public about a better and attainable way of improving their lives, ultimately improving the environment.
