"Nature is disappearing everyday, even in a state so full of it like Maine. Growing up in the same place your entire life, whether urban or rural, can cause so much familiarity that the connection is lost and no mind is paid to the environment that surrounds us. Today most young people don’t grow up working on family land as they used to. ... It is a connection we need to get back."
