The Wildlife of South Nelson

Posted on
School:  South Nelson

At South Nelson we are nature. However, sometimes as humans we forget that we are inseparable from the natural world. With this Beyond Recycling lesson we contemplated the complex connections between soil, water, air and sunshine and all living organisms, including us. We considered how each organism plays an important role in the intricate web of life. Students related to the pure joy of being a baby elk splashing in mud puddles and to the flow of energy through the veins of a maple leaf. We are the flowers blooming in the forest, the wind blowing through the trees, and the water spilling into Kootenay Lake. We are the choices we make and we are nature. When we care for nature, we are caring for ourselves!
