Our connection to nature

Happy New Years 2012!

To ring in 2012 on a positive note, I recommend checking out the following article:

The article describes the efforts of a PhD student to discover what circumstances contribute to our connection to nature.

Read the article, think about your own experiences with nature, leave a comment, or even contribute to the study. To contribute, simply click on ‘new research’ within the article and complete the survey!

Take my experience, for instance. I was inspired to get involved in environmental communications and conservation when I watched a pond that served as a home for diverse species be destroyed for the development of lake shore property. Though it was too late for me to take action and save this particular area, I recognized that it was not too late to get actively involved with environmental issues and I have been ever since.

Do you have a personal and/or defining moment with nature? Share it!
