Dear Abby: I’m writing in response to your answer to “Broke But Available” (March 23), the retired woman seeking ecological volunteer opportunities. I loved your reply and your suggestion to volunteer by providing education at a community center. In addition to community centers, many schools, scout troops, youth groups, nursing homes, etc., are always looking for knowledgeable people to provide information on a variety of topics.
Far too many individuals aren’t getting nearly enough — or any — information about ecology or learning ways to protect the beautiful natural world around us. I truly hope “BBA” will take you up on your suggestion by sharing something she cares about with others. — Former Teacher In North Carolina
