Sunday Serenity…The Grace of Water

“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he [she] needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him [her] the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in”–Rachel CarsonJulia-ssFrom the book, Maine Lakes with photography by Christopher Barnes.

This book can be purchased from the Maine Lakes Conservancy Institute and 100% of the proceeds goes to support their children’s water education programs.  They’re a hands-on field based experiential education nonprofit organization and they do good work creating “better stewards for today and leaders for tomorrow”.

UPDATE:  The good people at Maine Lakes Conservancy are making the coffee table book available to Fresh[water] Ideas for a Thirsty Planet at a special webprice.  The list price for this beautiful coffee table book is $40.00.  If you call or email them and tell them I sent you they will sell the book for $20.00 to you.  All proceeds benefit their children’s lake science education programs.  You may have to pay shipping costs [ask them], maybe they’ll throw that in as well!
