OUR FUTURE ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERS
“WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS, TRUE
DISCOVERY BEGINS”

Geoffrey Bishop, world-renowned and local environmental educator, will give a brief talk about the importance of connecting young people with the land. In the words of David Attenborough, “No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced.”

GEOFFREY BISHOP.
