5/27/1907     Rachel Carson's Sense of Wonder
On this day in 1907 Rachel Carson was born in Springdale, Pennsylvania. Her homestead is now a museum and educational center, though it includes only one of the sixty-five acres upon which Carson learned the life-lesson that she would teach the world: "The lasting pleasures of contact with the natural world are not reserved for scientists but are available to anyone who will place himself under the influence of earth, sea, and sky, and their amazing life."

RachelCarson.org
"A website devoted to the life and legacy of Rachel Carson." Offers a biography, bibliography, and links, including resources for students and teachers.

"Carson was attacked by the chemical industry and some in government as an alarmist, but courageously spoke out to remind us that we are a vulnerable part of the natural world subject to the same damage as the rest of the ecosystem. ... Her witness for the beauty and integrity of life continues to inspire new generations to protect the living world and all its creatures."
