Honor Willie. Save the planet.
It's that simple.
Willie loved God's world here on earth and was passionate about preserving it. Here are some ways we can do that.
Plant an oak tree (or just water one).
Walnut Creek Open Space Foundation is trying to increase the number of seedlings, saplings and young oak trees that survive in our open spaces. Volunteers gather and plant acorns, install tubex and water trees. Call (925) 939-6610 or e-mail email@example.com.
Help a wild animal get well and return to its natural habitat. The Alexander Lindsay Museum's wildlife rehabilitation center is one of the oldest and largest wildlife hospitals in the United States, treating nearly 6,000 injured or orphaned wild animals each year. The museum is right next to Larkey Park. To find out how you can help, visit the web site or call (925) 935-1978.
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. If every household in the U.S. replaced just one roll of virgin-fiber bathroom tissue with a roll made of 100% recycled paper, it would save 373,000 trees, 1.48 million cubic feet of landfill space, and 155 million gallons of water. Please recycle. Go to Earth 911 to think globally and Contra Costa Recyling & Waste Reduction to act locally.
Donate to Willie's favorite charity. Willie loved chimps. Maybe you could help save one. Adopt a chimp or donate online at The Jane Goodall Institute's Chimpanzee Eden. You also may mail a check to:
