As pointed out in the other posts children are ready and willing to be taught that the lakes are something to take pride in.

It is great work you are doing educating the youth and getting them to take a proactive stance on the lakes and environment issues in general. On a smaller scale we try the best we can to instil a sense of ownership of the environment in our children and it is working.

About a week ago I was walking with my 5 year old and he spotted a bag of garbage that someone threw in a creek and said to me “Daddy can you go get that and put it in the bin, it might hurt the fish”

I felt so proud I did wade out into the creek and collected someones garbage and put it in a garbage container. It is nice to see him taking an initiative like that and hopefully when he grows up he will continue to think about the environment and even the little things he can do to help.

Yes, we need to teach our kids to protect the environment because they are inheritors of the earth. After all, it is their home that we are protecting.

Live forever and prosper!

We engage youth in art and essay programs … they know the problems; they know the solutions; and, unlike most of us, have the courage to speak on the matter.

Sincerely,
