    CSL2 Reflection Question: I can apply ecological principles to my everyday life by creating a network with my friends and family to work together to reduce our impact. We can carpool to events that we are all going to, thus reduce our overall carbon footprint, and reduce road congestion. Furthermore, by creating a network in a academic field, we can work to reduce out ecological impact by trying to find better ways to reduce our footprint and work as a community to reduce pollution. By focusing on developing our ecological cognizant mindset, we can try to better ourselves personally by creating little everyday tasks to try to better the world around us. On such task is to try to pick up at least 1-2 pieces of trash whilst out on a walk, and dispose of them properly. If everyone adopted rules like this then it would significantly reduce the amount of trash present in our national parks and walkways.

    CSL1 Reflection Question: I hope to learn more about project management in regards to our START Projects. Behaviorally, I hope to be able to adapt my transportation habits so that I am carpooling more with people to reduce carbon emissions, and road congestion. Regarding what I can contribute to my START group, I can help incorporate GIS if need be, to provide an accurate plan to approving officials/ facilities.
