A memory from September 11, 1970
As a young boy my elders gave me a lesson on why not vandalize a tree.
I eventually learned about ecology, inner tidal zones, and naturalism.
I did a lot of tree planting and forest fire fighting as a young man.
I spend a lot of time outdoors: walking, hiking and biking.
I try to recycle, recover and reuse.
All these activities are still practiced across the country.
