Measuring Our Impact
Human activity clearly has a major impact on the natural environment and its inhabitants. Historically, much of this impact has been negative. After discussing several causes of species endangerment, we’ll take an interactive survey to find out how to make sure our environmental footprint for the future is a positive one. A couple of live animals and several natural props will enhance the program.
