In the news journals I subscribe to, there has recently been a flurry of information about the idea of how we use the land, and what effects our use of the land produce on teh greater environment. In that vein, I have written several articles reflecting this discussion. The first is up on the website now, discussing the idea of native plants replacing the ubiquitous American lawn. The second will be posted in a just a few weeks, disucssing the topic of local food and food stability.

In the FORUM, a reader recently requested tips on animal tracking. Join in the discussion here:
Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
I hope to hear from you sometime soon,
