It's been a very tough few years losing wetlands and public lands locally and in the state. And now, in the last year, federally too. Heartbreaking. All of our work projects are focused on protecting remaining wetlands, and our spare time too. This whole notion that wetlands can be effectively 'relocated' is a false one. It's like 'relocating' a mountain. The dismissing and undermining of science is a tragedy. When the things we care so deeply about, and that affect so many people, are continually undermined, it affects many aspects of our life. It is really good to be working together so closely with others who understand and care.
