How much time did you spend outside as a child/teenager? Describe your
experiences with forestland or other natural environments. Are those
areas still in their natural state? Even if you have not spent much time
outdoors, have you seen natural areas become fragmented due to land-use
change (housing developments, industry, clear-cutting, etc.)? Consider
the benefits and services provided by natural lands (clean water, air,
biodiversity, etc.). How does the loss of forests and other natural
lands affect you personally? Give specific examples.
