Earth is a dynamic planet. As we come to appreciate its history and the long-term trends that have shaped the present, we realize that continuous change characterizes the planet, from the movement of continents to changes in the chemical composition of the atmosphere. Perhaps nowhere is change more obvious that on the planet’s surface, where human land use shapes landscapes, alters ecosystems, and influences the diversity of life they support.
One of our family’s all-time favorite resources is our local Cleveland Metroparks. The Metroparks are also affectionately called the Emerald Necklace as there are parks that were wisely donated and preserved that are like a ring of interconnected parkways and trails that run through the surrounding Cleveland area.
They also have a publication, aptly named Emerald Necklace and my issue just arrived yesterday. If you are in the area, you can explore it online and see all the wonderful opportunities coming up. If you are not in the area, there are still some great resources to be found. For example, scroll to page 4 and read The Greatest Show on Earth by Robert D. Hinkle, PhD. Not only is it a great description of the solar cycle, there is also a useful link to the www.spaceweather.com to see when you might see a great show as well.
