This very rainy and cool Monday kept me at my desk all day except to jump up occasionally to be sure I could still touch my toes. Mondays seem to bring a flurry across my desk—mostly my cyber desk, messages that fall out of cyberspace and land in my Inbox. Here are two of today’s cyber news that merit sharing:
1. In 2010, Congress directed the Council on Environmental Quality and the Interior Department to prepare a strategy for addressing climate change impacts on fish, wildlife and plants. The draft plan is now available and is open for public comment until March 5, 2012: http://www.wildlifeadaptationstrategy.gov.
2. Not to be missed—the Annapolis Horticulture Society is promoting a special two-day garden excursion to the Shenandoah Valley, April 14-15 at a great price. The tour includes attending a one-day conference, Tomorrow’s Landscapes, at Shenandoah University (www.tomorrowslandscapes.com). Contact the Annapolis Horticulture Society for details and to register: http://www.annapolishorticulture.org/events.html.
