Nature On Display
Nature and Ethics
I agree with Leopold that we need to treat nature with the utmost respect. The National History Museum did provide me with the opportunity to admire nature. Everything was peaceful and lively, it seemed to exude a sense of tranquility. It helped me realize that we spend so much time trying to destroy or control nature when we should be basking in its beauty. I felt guilty as i walked through the museum, guilty thoughts for not caring enough about nature and its role in our community. I could hear the noises, see the wildlife, and sometimes even smell the atmosphere. The day I went was pretty crowded and a lot of little kids were running around in awe at everything they saw, the parents also seemed to take in interest in explaining to their children everything they knew. There was an obvious connection when we could read the plaques and get to know more about the exhibits and also how we could notice details. My experience did make me consider how I can be more ethically responsible to nature and how i can try and spread to word and my experience to friends and family.
