Capturing moments on our earth doesn’t get any better when the moments share the flora and fauna that surround us everyday. How can we insure our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and their children have these photo opportunities? We have to share passion for our earth and ecology everyday and not just Earth Day. We have to inspire learners’ curiosity and produce critical thinkers to solve environmental issues in the future. How can you make an impact so we can hang on to the things that matter?
