    • Can table at EarthFest, just no common theme
  • Green Transportation + EcoTourism
    • EcoTourism: a form of tourism for seeing landscapes and leaving them relatively untouched
    • It is good because it gives people a connection to natural, gives a better appreciation
    • Is seeing the environment worth the risk of hurting the environment?
    • Have to fly, which has negative environmental impacts.
    • Many people who are in lower classes can't really afford ecotourism
    • It can be good, but it depends on how they use the experience
    • Could do more field trips to parks and hiking, etc. Albany Pine Bush preserve
