This quote from poet W.H. Auden is brilliantly used in a TED Talk delivered by Sylvia Earle, noted American oceanographer. You can watch it by clicking here: Sylvia Earle TED Talk
I have been thinking a lot about our opportunity to make an impact as we watch the heartland of our nation suffer through catastrophic drought. A concept that may seem a million miles away from the lush and perpetually wet Hoh River valley. But I imagine soon we all will feel the impact in food prices and shortages. Which makes me think about our insatiable demand for animal protein-but that's a post for another time.
It makes me so grateful for our band of HRT supporters and for the on-going work you enable us to perform. It may not seem like a lot, but years of habitat recovery and stream restoration WILL pay off in the long run.
If you haven't done so already please join our mailing list so you can get our regular updates on the projects we have underway. I think you will find it interesting and see how your contributions will make a lasting difference.
