We are working on ways to get children deeply engaged in preserving and shaping the places they love. One of our current projects involves working with girls and young women around the world in what we call the Observe! merit badge project, funded by the Ford Foundation. Another project we're working on is with the Consortium for Dark Sky Studies, working to preserve dark skies in cities and towns. Dark skies, as part of nature, are also endangered. We are working to enhance these relationships with children around the globe.
