Rachel Carson was an American biologist who cared deeply about the natural world. In the Sense of Wonder Ms. Carson wrote “Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.”
To honor this environmental pioneer, the U.S. EPA and its partners are sponsoring the 7th Annual Rachel Carson Intergenerational Contest.
Water that you feel for the sea, the night sky, forests, birds, wildlife, and all that is beautiful to your eyes.” We want you to share this love of nature with a child or an elder.
When we teach our eyes and ears and senses to focus on the wonders of nature, we open ourselves to the wonders around us.
Submissions due Monday, June 10, 2013.
