Today's photo comes from Steven Watts a Masters student at McMaster University who also works with The Starfish Canada.
From Steven: My photo was taken in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (my hometown). On a hike to one of the my favourite local waterfalls (Albion Falls), this scenery really gave me a sense of awe. I usually walk along the stream on this hike so that I can experience the sounds of water, see the roots of trees bursting through the clay soil, and hop along the rocks in the stream. I have done this hike a few times this past summer because it seems different every time I do it. The water levels change, the clarity of the water varies, and the transformation of greenery throughout the summer is fantastic to see. It is special to me because it has character, it has history, and it has a therapeutic effect on me. Maybe it’s the sound of the water or the happy greetings from fellow hikers, but it’s a place to recharge and get away for a bit.
One small action I do daily in support of the environment: I have taken a personal pledge to pick up at least one piece of litter everyday. It’s a simple action but I have picked up over 900 pieces of litter so far. As you can imagine, I have found some bizarre pieces of litter- people will toss anything into nature. If everyone picked up one piece of litter every day the impact on a cleaner planet would be incredible!
