“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”
- Foreword, A Sand County Almanac
Perhaps one of the biggest personal choices that can impact a person's carbon footprint is their choice of vehicle. If you have ever explored Duke Farms, you might have noticed the different transportation methods staff use to get around the 18 miles of trails - driving fully electric vehicles (EVs) is a great way to navigate the site to tend to daily duties while cutting down on emissions on the property. In this resource, learners will understand the differences between gas, hybrid, and electric vehicles and how they compare in terms of emissions and sustainability.
