Rhode Island Families in Nature

ALL ABOUT ME

As the former Project Advisor for Teens for Planet Earth and Program Coordinator of Girls for Planet Earth, I thoroughly enjoyed working with the Wildlife Conservation Society for seven years. Now I'm setting a new goal: to help children of all ages and their families spend more time outside, reaping the many benefits that nature has to offer.

People who regularly spend time outside are happier, healthier, and even smarter than those who do not. More and more research is showing that contact with nature is necessary for healthy development in children as well as the physical, mental, and emotional health of both children and adults.

So... get outside! And if you're in the RI area, check out Rhode Island Families in Nature.

Also, check out the up-and-coming Rhode Island Museum of Science and Art.

Great Projects Out There

You know, no matter how many times I look at the 2008 and 2009 Service Award winners, or speak to any teen out there doing some great work for the planet, I'm always impressed. What oftentimes starts as a small, simple activity, many times grows into a wonderful, multi-faceted conservation project that can have a real, solid impact on the environment.

Staying Motivated/Team Dynamics

Service-Learning Projects can be quite inspiring, interesting, rewarding...and challenging! Every team's energy and passion ebbs and flows throughout a project. Here are five simple ways to stay motivated and, by the way, help you and your team members get along:



1. Take a field trip to a zoo, park, or other natural area to relax and regroup.



2. Praise your fellow teammates. You can even write a note to each of… Continue

emm well yes...we did think about that..we went requesting the local shops to replace the plastic with paper bags...emmm in the beginning thought they agreed but later on we felt it would not be effective...so wat we have planned is we will be askin the visitors to either drop the polythene bag and purchase the paper bag or else...we will be using the reuseable or lets say washable bags....
as far as our concern we are sure people will stop using the polythene bag but the big problem out here is the wrappers of Lays and other snacks which they bring and throw nywhere they like....
so we are planning to take immediate action for this...like askin them to throw it into the dustbin or either eat only in particular place...but i want something which is more effective...and take be taken immediately...

People's Climate March

People's Climate MarchSeptember 21st,I pull on my cap and volunteer shirt, walk to Columbus Circle Subway Station, all while simultaneously yawning. It's 7:30 in the morning. I'm already on duty. As I gaze around, I glimpse passerby in absurd and fascinating costumes. A man or a sun, a man-sun strolls along. Someone with a pointed warlock hat- not really sure what he was supposed to be.People are already here, committed to the act of defying climate change. The day progresses, my arms ache from…See More

CCD of Honey Bees

CCD of Honey BeesColony Collapse Disorder among the Honey Bees is no longer a worry of the past. It is a legitimate concern among environmentalists and researchers. Why are the colonies being lost? This is the ultimate question that must be addressed. If we ignore the increasing death of bees, we may threaten the cultivation of various foods, flowers, jeopardizing the sustenance all creatures depend on. Not only to honey bees make honey, but they pollinate fruits, vegetables, and various…See More
