    While I was in Colorado for Spring break I spent 20 minutes silently meditating on my gratitude for Earth and nature

    To  be better informed about what is going on in the field of conservation and environmental science I subscribed to a news feed from Science Direct that keeps me in the loops

  • Kevin Styers 3/20/2018 2:21 PM
    Most of my friends are not studying conservation so I brought this up in conversation to see what their thoughts about it were. They were interested because I mentioned that a lot of conservation choices are also helpful for saving money, which is a big concern amongst my peers.

    Rode my bike around the area and discovered I live very close to one of the largest parks in Fairfax County, Huntley Meadows. I will be visiting this area more often and bring trash bags along to clean up as needed

    Put some air in the 94 mountain bike and explored the nearby area. Somehow I ended up at the Huntly Meadows Park, what an awesome discovery. Cannot wait until it spring and the plants begin to flower.
