Keep asking: Curiosity is an essential skill for all kinds of jobs; don’t be afraid to ask questions and keep learning. Not sure you have all of the answers? That’s okay, no one does!
Combat the invaders: Volunteer with a forest preserve, community group, or public garden to clean up invasive plants.
Become a storyteller: The world around us has a lot of stories to tell, if we take the time to listen and observe. Think about something (a building, a tree, etc.) that you encounter every day and draw or write a story from its perspective. How has it experienced changes in the environment? What might it be thinking about you?
