When I was a kid, my dad and I explored the outdoors every weekend, and while searching for critters and hiking to the top of mountains I developed my love of nature. But it seems 'getting outside' is getting harder to do as life gets busier.
Last week's incredibly positive response to our Top 10 Quotes
on Love, Art, Poetry and Nature featured on Facebook
, came as a surprise. So, in this February edition of Y2Y's Connections E-newsletter
we are continuing to promote the love of nature.
Discover one of the most biologically diverse places on earth - B.C.'s Flathead
- and find out how big, wild spaces like the Flathead and the Yukon's Peel River Watershed
are literally good for us.
Just as important as exploring nature, it is also vital to coexist with it responsibly. In Grizzly Gives It an 'A'
, learn how youth are helping communities live with wildlife. And read about how Brianna Burley
and Mathieu Bourbonnais
are becoming the next generation of scientists, finding real solutions to prevent grizzly mortalities.
As always, I appreciate your feedback and invite you to drop me a note
Yours in conservation,
