A Conservation Easement Conversation 

I want to discuss our ongoing family conversation about creating a conservation easement with a land trust. In other words, we have not yet made a decision. We've wrestled long and hard with making the decision. I think of these conversations as rather like the Mosquito Creek that runs through our forestland in northern Idaho.

Growing forests for great drinking water 

Did you know forests make great water? Or that some forest soils can absorb over 15” of rain/hour compared to a lawn which can absorb only an inch or less of water/hour while pavement doesn’t absorb any rain at all?

Next to me is a MN Women’s Woodland Network mug filled with tap water and tomorrow’s forecast calls for thunderstorms and heavy rain. I’m reminded of just how closely these two things are linked.
