Why do you care about protecting Big Green? 

Caring for Green Lake is an extension of who I am. Our bodies are made mostly of water, so I believe there's something about being in its presence that reminds us of who we are and who we were and who we want to be. I am also proud to be an example for my daughter of what it means to leverage my time and abilities to protect our little corner of Planet Earth. And, with hard work and perseverance, Charlotte will eventually benefit from our collective efforts to protect the awe-inspiring resource that we all are so fortunate to be stewards of: Big Green.
