For our New Year hike, we traveled up to Silver Creek Metro Park to take in the sights and start the year off with a lovely stroll in the woods (as has become our tradition). It was a bright and brisk morning and it seems many others had the same idea as us! It's a beautiful thing, seeing people bundle up to enjoy nature. Besides all the personal health benefits, it really bodes well for the Earth, knowing that people can form a great appreciation for our natural resources by hiking around parks and natural areas. That appreciation and joy for wandering through the woods can influence people to take a stand against all the things that are destroying our finite natural resources.
Take a moment to think about some of your favorite components of nature, do you have a favorite bird song that ushers in the spring, or perhaps a flower that reminds you of a beautiful time in your life. These are constantly in jeopardy, but as more and more people, more generations, are exposed to all the great things nature has to offer, the more they'll care to save, learn, and work towards innovating new ideas for a clean and sustainable future.
