Celebrating Rachel Carson


The American bald eagle is due to be removed from the federal Endangered Species List any day now, and that is due in great part to the ban on DDT.
Back in 1962, Rachel Carson wrote a book “Silent Spring,� that essentially highlighted the impact of the DDT pesticide and the responsibility of people to care for the environment and its creatures.
Carson’s 100th birthday was May 27th, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, as well as other organizations, are celebrating throughout 2007 with exhibits, an online book club, and other activities designed to involve the public.
