What is the environment to me? The environment is my home, and yet, its everywhere. When I’m outside on the front lawn with my dog playing catch, when I’m walking down the sidewalk on my way to the university, and when I’m on vacation at a beach in some tropical place I am surrounded by the environment. What first comes to mind when I think of the environment is my home back in Melfort. We lived on an acreage with large lawns that we would run and play on, a long dirt road that we would ride our bikes on, and hundreds of trees that we ourselves planted. My favorite environment would be when I would walk with my dog too our raspberry bushes beyond our numerous trees where I would pick berries until I couldn’t hold anymore, and then continue my walk until I had reached the end of the trees where the last tree had a very low branch that I could sit on while I watched cars drive by and share my berries with my dog. It may not be everyone’s idea of the environment but it is a place where I feel closest to the earth.
Even though people may have their own ideas on what the environment is (which I am in no way disagreeing with those ideas of environment), I believe that the environment is everywhere and all around us. Though the environment changes depending on our location we are still within an environment of some kind. Whether we live in the city, small town, or a different country, we are all in an environment.
