“There can be no greater issue than that of conservation in this country.” –Theodore Roosevelt, 1912
Everyone has a story to tell. How are changes in your local wildernesses, parks and special places affecting you and your community? What special places do you think should be saved forever? What natural treasures do you value in your own community and want to pass on to the next generation? Share your story -- speak up for nature to help save the places we love!
I have always loved the outdoors but have not always realized the importance of conservation. I figured that the good places would always be there. Thank goodness for folks who were more in tune than I was. I do support organizations as I can and will attempt to join in local events to help our local wildlife/conservations. A little late to the game but maybe I can catch up some. Nature can't always wait for us to have time for it's future.

The Altama River in coastal GA is being polluted. It's a major tributary that flows into the ocean. We need support from corporations.
I'll make my story short, because the way nature has touched my heart could lead to a very long tale. When I was a child I lived in a HIGHLY abusive family, my safe place was nature the quiet and the presence of the Divine being(s) was soothing to me..calmed me and helped me get through my childhood and NOT follow in the footsteps of those who birthed or raised me.
Nature was and is the temple where I am close to Divine being still, in the stillness and quiet is a beauty that speaks to ones heart and nurtures the soul.

The Texas Gulf Coast has beautiful beaches and areas where shorebirds nest and raise their young. It also has woods where tired birds stop after their long migration across the gulf from Mexico and farther south. These woods and beaches must preserved and protected from pollution and urban sprawl. They are vital to the health and well being of our children as well as the bird and other wildlife populations.
