Get Involved Through Social Media

Monday, August 18, 2014 - 2:42pm
In her wise and elegant new book, “Seeds of Hope: Wisdom and Wonder from the World of Plants,” Dr. Jane Goodall with Gail Hudson, blends her experience in nature with her enthusiasm for botany to give readers a deeper understanding of the world around us. Continuing their exploration here, Dr. Goodall provides ideas and inspiration for what readers can do to get involved in and protect the world of plants.
 
Social media sites like Twitter and Facebook can be valuable tools for raising awareness about issues, networking with others who care about preserving the environment, and signing petitions. If there is an issue near and dear to your heart that is not receiving enough attention, you can create your own petition on sites like Moveon.org
 
Social media websites now make it possible to participate in current scientific research as well. Create your own mission for nature exploration and document plant and wildlife sightings on Project Noah or monitor and report on plant growth with Project BudBurst each season.
