    Being thankful means you need to think about what you have. That leads to thinking about ways to help others.

    I can incorporate my personal values into my exercise routine by exercising with family and friends, and hiking more often.

    Nature Leave No Trace
    Educator Stephanie Kaza advises her students to focus on what they care about most when addressing the enormity of ecological problems. Is there a specific area you feel particularly called to work on?

    I think that I am called to work with birds and help endangered species survive and thrive.

    I like waking through my neighborhood because there's always something different to see - a bird, a flower, a mushroom, a deer. You never know.
