We take care of what we love, so falling in love with nature is a great first step toward protecting wildlife, wild places and the environment.
Here on the Westshore we are close to some incredible parks and one of my favorites Havenwood is just a short walk away from my home.
Having a stroll in your own backyard to the nearest park or other type of natural area is a great way to enjoy a relationship with our natural world.
Take along some family members or friends because getting people outside is a great way to open their eyes to the natural world and helps build public support for conservation efforts.
Happy New Year to all nature lovers in 2016!
