    Hi Everyone,

    I am giving a talk soon on "Conservation in the Classroom" and wanted to get some background information. So, if you have a few seconds, I'd appreciate your feedback.

    In one word, what comes to mind when you hear the word "conservation"?

    In one sentence, what does conservation mean?

    Thanks!

    Greg
