Protecting Our Peace
September 19 - December 18, 2022
Protecting Our Peace invites you to consider the places you feel most peaceful and at ease. Is it
in the mountains? Near water? Or trees? Often these quiet natural spaces allow our busy minds
to at last rest, and provide us a greater perspective on life. Spending time in nature has been
proven in numerous studies to help with mental health. However, despite the invaluable
resources, both external and internal, that nature provides us, many of our natural spaces are in
danger from erosion, deforestation, pollution, and other human-created crises.
By advocating for and protecting the health, safety, and stewardship of our forests, water
resources, wildlife habitats, farmland, and open spaces, we advocate for and protect ourselves
and our own inner peace. As you explore Protecting Our Peace, we hope you remember your
own symbiotic relationship to the natural world and advocate for the continued protection of
these necessary natural spaces that serve as both an external and internal sanctuary.
