Photo: How to write a love letter to nature

David Suzuki Foundation staff wrote letters to nature.

We're partnering with the Love Lettering Project during our annual May 30×30 Nature Challenge. (Even though nature takes mail all year round...)

Reflect on what you love most about nature.

I told nature I think it makes the best babysitter, picks me up when I get down, smells better than the city and looks great in the dark.

Express your passion in a love letter:

  • Hide it for someone to find — around the house, at your local library, community centre or school. Write #lovenature or #30×30NatureChallenge on the envelope so others can play along.
  • Enlist your kids or pitch the idea to your daycare or school. Think of all the child art you're currently hoarding and how it might benefit others in your community!
  • Do it at work, covertly. Hide your letter inside the office or outside if you have a courtyard or garden. Or invite colleagues to participate — provide markers and paper, then showcase the letters for everyone to enjoy.
  • Share your love letter on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #lovenature and you'll be entered to win a prize package from Genuine Health.

Write your love letter during the month of May while you're doing our 30×30 Nature Challenge! We're selecting a winning letter each week.

What do you love about nature?
