The Earth and I

The Earth and I are in a relationship. What does this mean?
Join the Finger Lakes Museum for a series of lectures and workshops which consider our relationship as humans with the planet on which we live. All organisms, by their very existence, have an impact on their environment. We, as humans, are able to consider our impact and make conscious choices.
Let’s explore our relationship and find ways to make it a healthy one!
