How much time did you spend outside as a child/teenager? Describe your

experiences with forestland or other natural environments. Are those

areas still in their natural state? Even if you have not spent much time

outdoors, have you seen natural areas become fragmented due to land-use

change (housing developments, industry, clear-cutting, etc.)? Consider

the benefits and services provided by natural lands (clean water, air,

biodiversity, etc.). How does the loss of forests and other natural

lands affect you personally? Give specific examples.
