Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time.

The Problem

Our wish is that the young children in our area will develop a greater respect and love for our natural world while learning new ways of both appreciating and protecting it.

Our Plan

We would like to teach groups of local children about Jane and people like her. Then, we would like to take nature hikes where these children can photograph and/or draw pictures of the the things they see along the way, rather than disturbing them and attempting to collect them/bring them home. We will also teach the children never to leave anything in the woods that doesn't belong there, but to help pick up after people who did. We will also help them to understand that it is never necessary to "squash" a bug or harm any plant or creature.
