This year’s Green Gala will rally around the issues of water and renewable energy. It will kick-off a monthlong celebration leading up to the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act and promote EcoWatch’s petition telling Congress to expedite renewable energy.

Brief remarks will be provided by Marcus Eriksen, director of 5 Gyres Institute and world-renowned water advocate who has brought attention to the issue of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans and its impact on human health and the environment. Additional special guests will be announced closer to the fundraiser so be sure to join our email list by clicking here.

Honeybucket, a Cleveland-based “newgrass” trio—Adam Reifsnyder, Brendan O'Malley and Abie Klein-Stefanchik—that showcases the best of pop-rock with a bluegrass twist, will open the evening as you enjoy the Rock Hall exhibits.

EcoWatch unites the voices of the grassroots environmental movement and mobilizes millions of people to engage in democracy to protect human health and the environment. The online news service helps transform the ability of individuals to learn about environmental issues and motivates readers to become engaged in their community, adopt sustainable practices and support strong environmental policy.

Blue Sky Riders is a new creative step forward for Kenny Loggins in a career filled with magic moments. His hits, early on as half of Loggins and Messina and then as a solo artist, include Danny’s Song, House at Pooh Corner, Your Mama Don’t Dance, Angry Eyes,Whenever I Call You Friend (with Stevie Nicks) and This Is It; a series of movie theme songs, including I’m Alright (Caddyshack), Footloose (Footloose), Danger Zone (Top Gun), and Nobody’s Fool (Caddyshack II); and later Billboard AC smashes including Conviction of the Heart, The Real Thing, If You Believe and For the First Time.

The creative spark that eventually evolved into Blue Sky Riders was struck when two veteran singer/songwriters worked on their first song together. When Kenny Loggins, one of the premiere voices in modern popular music, joined forces with Gary Burr, one of Nashville’s most accomplished writers, on the well received 2008 release “How About Now” they felt they sounded like brothers when they sang together. Loggins, looking for a creative step forward in his musical career, decided on the spot to form a band but wanted to add a third, female voice. Burr, who has been named Songwriter of the Year by ASCAP, Billboard and NSAI and has worked with artists such as Juice Newton, Conway Twitty and Wynonna Judd, suggested singer/songwriter Georgia Middleman, who has worked with Keith Urban, Faith Hill and Martina McBride among others. And Blue Sky Riders was born. All three veterans sing lead amid three-part harmonies, which makes Blue Sky Riders unique. The trio is currently on tour and will continue to tour throughout the year. They are also putting the finishing touches on their debut album, which will be released soon.

A new study is shedding light on just how much ice could be lost around Antarctica if the international community fails to urgently rein in planet-heating emissions, bolstering arguments for bolder climate policies.

The study, published Thursday in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that over a third of the area of all Antarctic ice shelves — including 67% of area on the Antarctic Peninsula — could be at risk of collapsing if global temperatures soar to 4°C above pre-industrial levels.

This week, Secretary Haaland chose a visit to Bears Ears National Monument as her first trip as Interior Secretary. She is spending three days in Bluff, Utah, a small town just outside the monument, listening to representatives of the five tribes who first proposed its designation to President Obama in 2015. This is the same town where former Secretary Sally Jewell spent several hours at a public hearing in July 2016 before recommending the monument's designation to President Obama.

The coronavirus has isolated many of us in our homes this year. We've been forced to slow down a little, maybe looking out our windows, becoming more in tune with the rhythms of our yards. Perhaps we've begun to notice more, like the birds hopping around in the bushes out back, wondering (maybe for the first time) what they are.
