What Are You Doing to Preserve the places that are special to you and your family? What should we be doing together to preserve what we all think should not be lost? Thos book is the story of some of those wonderful places all across America and what key people and organizations have done in the past to save them. It also offers examples of what we must do now-on our watch-to preserve our country's wonders for ourselves and future generations. in his award-winning 2009 book, the Chesapeake Watershed: A Sense of place and a call to action, Ned Tillman described some of the places important to him: the Susquehanna River, the Appalachian Mountains, and the Chesapeake Bay. Saving the Places We Love addresses the major environmental challenges of our time in a compelling fashion. Topics discussed include: climate change, mountaintop mining, the use of fossil fuels, fracking, groundwater (quality, supply, and runoff), the future of agriculture and aquaculture, habitat loss, growing population, waste disposal, air quality and our future energy supply. Designed to meet the needs of the Common Core curriculum and written for a general audience, Saving the places We Love interweaves engaging first-person accounts, science, and evidence-based arguments in suggesting ways each of us can meet the environmental issues of the 21st century.
