Why adopt a river?
As with many, this too is a good question? To put things in perspective, imagine the world’s water supply fitting into a gallon bucket, and out of that gallon, ONLY a 1 teaspoon of that water, would equate to the fresh water supply we rely on for life’s existence. Knowing this, how precious is that teaspoon of water, now?
“We do not own the earth; we are its caretakers. We have a responsibility towards it. There was a time when we were so few that the earth could absorb and correct almost any mistake we made. But no more. Our power and influence is too great now. If we refuse to take care of the earth, or do a shoddy job of it, the effects of our mistakes will eventually come back to haunt us.” – Tom Brown Jr. from his field guide, Living with the Earth
