Connecting people with the natural environment fosters a stewardship ethic that sustains healthy, vibrant communities. Land trusts are expert communicators that are increasingly incorporating environmental education into their existing outreach and recreation programs to create opportunities for all people. Introducing outdoor recreation and education early in life can have especially lasting impacts. Incorporating facts about climate change into these efforts can help bring the conservationists of tomorrow up to speed about the challenges we are facing today so they too can be part of working towards a solution.
