If you are not familiar with the Nature Conservancy, please visit their website and learn about the great work that they do. What I appreciate about this environmental advocacy group is that it accomplishes its goals in a nonconfronational, nonpolitical way. The Nature Conservancy is all about acquiring and holding in perpetuity lands that are under threat–rivers, wetlands, grasslands, coral reefs, and others. Lands that are held in the public trust for current and future generations. Incidentally, some of the Nature Conservancy’s “properties” include trout streams and are made available to fishermen free of charge.
This is an organization that you can support regardless of your political affiliation. I urge you to join.
