Nature opening ceremony

It is exciting to learn about animals, birds, insects, flowers, trees, rocks, soil, weather, water
and stars! Nature is everywhere all the time---in cities, in the woods and fields, in the winter,
spring, summer, and fall. Nature is not confined by time and place--- it is
But where to begin? How to begin? All you need to start is an inquiring mind ---
and eyes, ears, nose, and hands. Use all senses to gather information from the world
about you. In the beginning we might just as well make up our minds that we are
never going to know all there is to know about the subject. Remember that it is not so much
knowing the names and identifying everything, but the joy in making the discovery that counts.
Nature is something we can enjoy no matter where we go in the world. Nature is something
we should enjoy and respect. Let's step out into the world of nature.
