LETTER: More nature programs needed in our schools

Students' appreciation for their proper role in nature will save us

Nature programs in schools such as Rockheights Middle School and South Park should be part of the curriculum in all schools.

Families should not have to camp out to ensure their children get one of the limited number of spaces therein.

Lack of such program over many years is clearly evident in the cavalier way governments, both provincial and national, treat the environment.

The almighty dollar is given precedence over proper regard for it, which could well have future generations everywhere living in Third World conditions.

Had such program been in place we would not be having wolf culls. Appreciation for their proper role in nature will save us.
