My response to the inquiry question (What ecological issues are
important in your community?) posted in the section "Conversations about
Teaching Contemporary Ecological Art"
(http://www.artsednet) is as follows:

Living in Tucson, Arizona, many of the ecological issues that are
important to the community pertain to the desert habitat. A big issue
right now is whether or not a school should be built because the
intended site is home to endangered pygmy owl.

On different note, Tucson is home to the famous Sonoran Desert Museum
which is a living museum of natural habitats with various plants and
animals found in the desert. This is a great resource for teachers in
the area to plan field trips and teach children about our beautiful
desert and the importance of the desert for all of its inhabitants. I
have been observing a 3rd grade class, and they invited a guest speaker
from the museum who visited the class to talk about various desert birds
and the importance of their habitat for the survival in the community.
I think it is important that teachers work with the community to pass on
this type of important information to the children they teach.
