Teaching about Guam’s Environment is My Nature

The word “nature” means our character. Nature is our attitude. Nature is also the external world including all aspects of the environment. You can do your part to teach about protecting all forms of nature, internal and external.

Teaching about the environment makes a big difference. If we each take a small step to becoming more sustainable, it will be one large step forward for the environment.
