April News and Happy Earth Day from Greenbelt! 
On Earth Day (and every day at Greenbelt) we think about the importance of land conservation. It protects open space and wildlife habitat, cleans our water, cools our air, builds climate resilience, supports local agriculture and provides places to enjoy nature. Best of all, the land we conserve today is protected for the next generation and beyond. This Earth Day, send a lovely e-card to someone you know when you make a gift to Greenbelt in their honor. Many thanks to sponsors EBSCO and The Law Office of Donald M. Greenough who will match up to $5,000!
