Making connections to the land

Document Actions

My husband, Delaney, and I wholeheartedly thank you for your incredible Jan. 21 issue on natural resource education. Both of us visited your office in winter of 2010 and talked to your staff about including more articles about education. We are educators ourselves and we love teaching outside in the rural West. We have dedicated our lives to guiding young people to discover themselves and deepen their connection to each other and the Earth. Now we are in graduate school in Portland where I am studying sustainability education, and Delaney is getting a master's in teaching high school social studies. Thank you for highlighting this important work; if people aren't connected to the land, will they want to learn about and care for it?
