Instill a Love of Nature
To honor the late preservationist and ecologist Rachel Carson, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Generations United and the Rachel Carson Council are holding a photo, essay and poetry contest “that best expresses the Sense of Wonder that you feel for the sea, the night sky, forests, birds, wildlife and all that is beautiful to your eyes.” In her book The Sense of Wonder (written in the 1950s and published in a magazine in 1956), Carson used lyrical passages about the beauty of nature and the joy of helping children develop a sense of wonder and love of nature. Winning entries will be published on the Web sites of EPA Aging Initiative, Generations United and Rachel Carson Council. Entries must be joint projects involving a person under age 18 and a person age 50 or older.
Deadline: June 10, 2011
