One of our goals at Inside the Outdoors is to create better stewards of the environment.  It is the children of the world that will be taking on the responsibility of making it a better place.  By sharing our passion we help foster an apprication for science and nature and all the wonders our Earth has to over.  Bellow are letters from students who attended Outdoor Science School to Mother Earth, on ways they can make the Earth a better place.

"Dear Mother Earth,

I am glad that you let us live on this planet. I will try to save the planet by not ruining oceans, forests, and more land.  I want the animals to have a good place to live. I will try my best to protect the Earth for you.

Sincerely, Cesar M."

"Dear Mother Earth,

I will pick up a lot more garbage.  I will ask people to cut less wood from your forests, and that we should only chop down trees when we need it. I will clean up in my community and I will help save the Earth.  Thank you for providing us with food, water and much more.

Sincerely, Leslie Y."

With your continued help we can continue to provide these life changing experiences for students and help create empowered young people that will strive to make this planet a better place for all.
