Go for a hike, sit in your city or town park, or explore your backyard. Just get out and appreciate what mother nature has created for us. And as you enjoy the solitude of nature, remember we are the only ones who can protect the environment. If you are hiking today, bring a trash bag with you and pick up trash along the trail or at the trailhead.

When it comes to conserving the White Mountains for future generations, there will be no single organization or person that saves the day. It will be a group effort, and education and training will be the key to success.
