Blog Action Day - Climate Change

It's been a month since my return from Churchill and as I reflect back on an amazing experience I find the words that my team mate Chris wrote to be so true:

"According to an ancient Native American Proverb, “We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” Kershaw emphasized repeatedly to our Team throughout the Expedition, it is the “individuals” that will make the greatest difference in this world - each person matters. Our individual choices to conserve matter. Our individual actions have an immediate impact and an extended influence to a watching and wondering world. In order to cause a ripple effect of sustainable global solutions…we must learn to be, the change we expect to see."

Personally I've made a commitment to stop drinking water from disposable plastic bottles, recycle more newspapers and reduce the amount of trash I create. I've presented to 17 different classes, seeing over 550 students in 4 schools and also gave a workshop for teachers. Next week I present to our community and parents. Again, a huge thanks to Earthwatch and all my teammates!

Community Project Follow Up

Students from Mesa Alta Junior High share their results from their Hart Canyon Field Trip. Here are just a few shots of some of the 30 presentations of what they found, the pH and conductivity results of the soil, and some of their drawings and pictures! A big thanks goes to Mesa Alta teachers Danette Candelaria, Shirely Hurford, Adam Benavidez, Kenny Florez, and Karla Harvel for their support of this project. What great teachers and students!
