What is Environmental Stewardship?

 

Environmental stewardship is all about taking care of our environment.  Considering the human population on Earth exceeded 7 billion in 2011, we need to make an earnest attempt at maintaining and respecting the environment for it to continue supporting us.

Although our personal actions may seem insignificant at times, any attempt at being a steward of the Earth is a worthwhile one.  Opportunities to be stewards of the environment are plentiful.  Examine your actions over the course of a day and consider how just one of these impacts the environment.  Leave no trace is a guideline for visitors in some state and federal parks - what trace do you leave behind each day?
