Theodore Roosevelt once defined conservation as the application of common sense to common problems for the common good.
The problem is some folks have a definition of what is common good, so they manipulate the truth about the problems and ignore any semblance of common sense.
To re-engage experiential education in the classroom will require instituting Theodore Roosevelt’s original quote with a focus on “common sense”. Our youth are losing touch with nature, which will only lead to a lack of understanding of the importance of conservation and our watershed’s which are the life blood for all of us. Today, between conservation special interests, outdoor groups biased special interests, litigation, the over protection of many American children and the media’s portraying the boggy man syndrome, all of which are valid, have contributed to the demise of the relationship between children and nature.
