1999-00: Legacy and Posterity

Volume 8: 1999-2000

Writers in this issue reflect on the importance of environmental legacy in our lives. For some contributors, legacy is held in a landscape, a generation, a mentor, a dream. For others, it is embodied in environmental heroes. A common theme throughout explores how a legacy of caring is passed from one generation to the next, and how such a living legacy can both nurture and alter our environmental history.
