I have been a member of the Advisory Board and now the Executive Board for many years and also Chair its committees on grant writing and the Chapman DeMarry Nature Trail. This is an outstanding organization. It reaches kids of all ages and teaches them the value of the environment through a wide range of fun and interesting activities. At the heart of the organization is a commitment to educating the next generation of youth on the many aspects of the natural world around them. Whether it is maintaining an outdoor classroom, learning about water quality through hands-on sampling of the nearby stream, or engaging them through interactive games in a classroom setting, the Nature Generation draws on the expertise of its hundreds of volunteers to make a difference in this critical area. I also get what i call my greatest day of the year -- spending time in a high school classroom teaching and interacting with really smart kids on the issues surrounding energy and climate change issues. It is so rewarding!
