Recipe for a Conservationist March 26, 2010

Take one child, preferably under the age of 10.

Place outside in an area with trees, a stream and sunshine.

Remove the watchful eyes of adults.

Let simmer for an hour or two.

Stir in a magnifying lens, bug collection jars, a net and some imagination.

Check back after 30 minutes to observe.

You should see a smile, eyes filled with wonder and dirty hands.

Repeat as often as possible. Include excited, adventurous adults when available.

Results may vary, but you should see one Conservationist with a varying degree of scientific curiosity.
