2012 marks the 40th anniversary of the world changing Clean Water Act. To commemorate this legislation and Rachel Carson's involvment in raising awareness and appreciation for the natural world, the Environmental Protection Agency has announced an intergenerational "Sense of Wonder" project.
This year's project will celebrate a "Sense of Water." Teams 2 or more, composed of an older adult and young person, will express the beauty and wonder of lakes, rivers, streams, oceans, and waterfalls through either poetry, essay, photography, or dance.
Visit The Rachel Carson Sense of Wonder Contest webpage for more information about the contest, and this webpage for more information about Rachel Carson!
