No Bossy Adults Allowed!

“You can help if you want but if you are bossy you can’t join.”  That was what I was told by these three little girls, from the Save the Earth Club, (pictured above) last week while I was in Rocky Harbour, NL.  I was blown away with the insight these three young activists had about the environment and what they could do to improve the world they live in – apparently one in which bossy adults have made a mess of!   This club meets quite regularly and engages other young people to do local environmental projects like beach sweeps, and recycling initiatives around the national park.   They have signs up around the town asking for volunteers to help out as well as looking for ideas for future activities.  If you happen to be in Gros Morne National Park and want to help out you should stop by the post office to see their volunteer sign up sheet, but please no bossy adults!
