    Needing support for the MBTA
    Evergreen Audubon has just launched the Year of the Bird for 2018. We celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
    The MBTA made it unlawful to kill, hunt, sell or possess most of the native wild birds in North America. Before the MBTA, billions of birds were being slaughtered for food, feathers and fun. Some birds, like the passenger pigeon and the Carolina parakeet, became extinct because of the hunting pressure on them before the MBTA.

  • Finding the meaningful middle ground

    The first time I remember believing that a political event provided an absolute truth was after Richard Nixon resigned the presidency in 1974.

    It wasn’t easy because before one story could play itself, out another replaced it. My notes became encyclopedically long. There’s a popular theory going around: Trump keeps up this pace so we can’t get preoccupied with one bit of beastly behavior or any single atrocious act. It fast becomes yesterday’s news.

  • Ensuring the availability of the Evergreen Lake trail

    One of the best things to do in Evergreen is to walk around Evergreen Lake. It’s a relatively easy hike with spectacular views, lots of activity as other people take advantage of a plethora of recreational activities that are available on and around the water, and access to a wide variety of wildlife, including many different bird species. Unfortunately, part of the trail was closed for more than a year and a half because of instability before it finally reopened in November.
