Teaching moments from strangers

Margaret Frericks, Executive Director, Improving Kids’ Environment, submitted to Encounter 1: Water Memories, describing a memorable moment in her own backyard:

I live on the canal. So everyday, water is basically my backyard. We have such diverse animals because of the canal. The other day, one guy who was fishing, and I asked him, ‘What are you fishing for?’ He told me about the different fish in the canal. Which it’s really cool to have that much diversity and to have it be such an important part of the community.
