From the Green Corner: Count the Butterflies

Count the Butterflies:

We talk about the value of our pollinators, but how do we really know if their populations are increasing or decreasing? Citizen science is the answer! Volunteer groups exist to count pollinators just as we count birds for Audubon and Cornell. Join the annual butterfly count at the Clifton Institute (6712 Blantyre Rd., Warrenton) on Saturday, July 23, where the results will be sent to the North American Butterfly Association. This is a free event, but registration is necessary.


Spiritual Reslience Working Group:

The media give us an overwhelming barrage of information about climate change, news that is discouraging at best, and which can create feelings of helplessness and despair.  The diocesan Spiritual Resilience working group provides a monthly safe space to talk.  Together we build spiritual resilience as we ponder a faithful/faith-filled response to the climate crisis. Join with others around the diocese as we talk, pray and vision together. July 28 from 7-8:15 by Zoom at or contact the Creation Care Task Force at for more information.
