Last summer a group of inner city kids in Chicago had a cool learning experience when they took part in summer camp activities that included gardening, exploring nature, understanding conservation, and the importance of environmental awareness.
They expressed an interest in environmental stewardship through writing about the projects they participated in. These are some of the words they used to describe their connection with the environment.
What words would you use to describe your connection with your environment?
