Connecting with Nature
Where's your favorite place outdoors?
When we ask our faculty and students why they chose to be marine and environmental scientists, many tell us that they had a deep connection to nature and that they were excited about the power of science to protect and improve our natural world. For this activity, find a place where you can sit quietly for ten minutes and think. You can write down responses or you can just let your mind wander. Think about what is important to you and what you want to protect. It could be a place near home, at your school, or even somewhere you've seen pictures of.
