Things and Thoughts

Environmental work has been and will continue to be most viable when it starts at the local level. Grassroots organizations, small businesses, and local officials play enormous roles in protecting and advocating for the natural world. Educating ourselves on these initiatives - reading books by naturalists and environmentalists, supporting green businesses, experimenting with lifestyle and habits - is essential to building a sustainable society and economy.  

Here's a list of people, places, things, etc. that we love and appreciate. We hope you will too.
