This “Earth Issue” of LOCAL Life is full of small changes you can make for a big impact. If you are concerned about the environment and would like to reduce your carbon footprint but don’t know where to begin, this issue is for you. It’s easier to make a difference than you might think.
The photo on our cover was taken at Savannah Wildlife Refuge in Hardeeville. The image was taken by photographer Timothy Dykes. Several threatened and endangered species are protected on the 31,551-acre refuge, including the American alligator, flatwoods salamander, bald eagle, wood stork, shortnose sturgeon and Florida manatee. We thought the lilies and lily pads were perfect for our “Earth Issue.”
