Video: Partnerships on Working Lands

https://vimeo.com/351628119   This video is by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. Private landowners are responsible for the use and management of more than two-thirds of our nation's land, including some of the most important fish and wildlife habitats in the United States.

Meanwhile, other animals are also responding to the seasonal change in temperature ...continue reading

It’s definitely not beautiful, and there’s nothing there to do. We found this toy camel off of a closed logging road near the Hoover Wilderness. I was monitoring an agricultural easement that had a historic boneyard this summer, and I ...continue reading

By Sara Dykman. This post was originally published in Orion Magazine, in their summer 2019 print issue. We are sharing it here with permission. WHAT I DIDN’T KNOW, as I crawled through that ditch alongside a lonely Texas highway, was that a cop was racing to my rescue. What I did know was that I was alive and well.
