Greetings from Biscayne National Park!
I am a 16 year old boy that grew up in the city his whole life. My parents are firm believers in the appreciation of nature, and I am exactly the same. I have traveled to almost all of the National Parks in the United States, from Death Valley all the way to Dry Tortugas, and loved almost every minute of it. I took the photograph pictured, and have taken a wide variety more both before and after this trip. I find the AP Environmental Science class fascinating and it inspired me to create my own version of a sustainable garden. I wish to reach out to organizations such as the National Parks Service, National Geographic, and the National Parks Conservation Association in order to find out what else I can do to get involved and help to educate my community. Finally, I hope to somehow get advice or support form organizations with my photography, studies and desire to help educate the public. Thank you for listening to my story.
P.S. I support the parks because… I study Environmental Science at my High School, and love to explore all areas of nature. National Parks are one of the bests ways to immerse yourself in nature. I believe that the best way to educate yourself about nature and what goes on all around us everyday is to witness it firsthand.
