Creation Care at St. James Episcopal Church

Updates

 The Nature Conservancy uses the best available science and decades of field experience to help Kansas lawmakers make informed decisions about climate policy. Here is the information about their position on KS House Bill 2320: https://www.nature.org/en-us/about-us/where-we-work/united-states/kansas/stories-in-kansas/climate-policy/

 On Sept. 18, 2021, we put 15 native plants in the ground along Yale Street, and an oak leaf hydrangea near the parking lot entrance. We will check our progress in the spring and determine if more plants will be needed.
