A Quick Thought...

Did you know that environmentally conscious behavior as an adult is less a result of learning and absorbing facts and more a result of having experiences in nature? What that means is that if we want to raise our children to be environmentally aware, we need to take them into nature! The love that they will develop for the natural world will help them make future decisions that will protect our planet.  So-- go on a hike, play in a stream, pick berries, help plant trees, get outside!
