The Environment - Section #500

When Bruce Masterman told me he was leading nature study sessions at Canyon Church Camp this summer, I flew to the #500 section of our library to see what resources we might offer.  We have Rachel Carson’s books (Carson is the founder of the contemporary environmental movement) and the early books by Farley Mowat, Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ and many of David Suzuki’s stuff.  But for children?  I found a treasure trove!  We have books for kids on oceans and rivers, forests, endangered animals, the night sky, simple experiments, kids crafts and games - all with an environmental focus.  Then, there are books on how to green your home, school and church, how to plant a community garden, safety in the wilderness and much more.
It all sounds like so much fun. 
Enjoy the experience, Bruce, and no, I didn’t include ‘Sleeping Naked is Green’.  After all, it’s a church camp for children.

"People shouldn't feel as though they have to choose between living out the rest of their days in a hippie commune in the middle of a hemp crop with a composting toilet and living in a stylish urban condo with his and hers sinks. There's a big grey area in the green sphere, and so the most sensible thing to do is to simply be aware of what you eat, drink, wear, use and do on a regular basis, then decide what can be reduced and what can't, without obsessing over it."
