All year long our coast gives us protection for our homes, communities and businesses. It gives us peaceful places to recreate. It provides homes and nesting-resting-feasting places for myriad wildlife, including endangered and threatened species. It provides livelihoods to people and value to property.
It truly is a wonderful place. That’s why more than 50% of Americans live within 50 miles of the coast.
During this holiday season, we are busy running around, going to parties and generally preparing. With all our diligence, we have forgotten somebody… or, rather, something – our coasts. Many of us are also going to be thinking about New Year’s resolutions soon. We can combine our gifts to the coast with resolutions for 2016.
To do all these things, you’ll need talking points. We have a few to get you started. Pick the ones that are most appropriate for your situation.
This holiday season, give back to the coast a little of the joy it has brought you… and happy holidays!
