For John: the full URL for the website that Dr. Garber's article about S.
Middleton and D. Liittschwager is located is:
For Lynn: Thanks for the additional resources. I was busy pointing my
finger at the contractors instead of pointing it at me first. I happen to
live in a part of Tucson where the oldest house is about 5 years old, and
my house is part of that sub-development. The choices we make in our
daily lifestyle can have a big impact on the bigger guy (the contractors),
so we can start with one individual at a time....
For Elizabeth: I like what Ron Hirschi has been doing: utilizing his
wildlife ecology and biology background and putting together some neat
children's books. Exact location of his article:
Perhaps we could convince our photographers to present the same
information and issues of ecological preservation and restoration in a
series of children's books. That way, lifestyle choices that are
difficult (that Lynn referred to) can be discussed before "bad" habits
For Ginny: What an amazing, though unintentional, way to preserve various
(potentially rare) species! I have always enjoyed visiting old graveyards
and reading the gravestones. I have never considered lifting my blinders
and looking around me at the plant and animal life that is protected from
the hustle and bustle of city and the work machines of the contractors! I
plan to visit an "open air museum" soon and explore.
Again, thanks for the responses. Do we have any folks who have been
quietly browsing, but have ideas or thoughts on these issues?
My turn to be quiet,
