Nature's Voice

"The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope." (Wendell Berry)

If you ever wondered what Nature's Voice sounds like, she's a Loon. One of our Loons, in fact. Our "Baby on Board" image graces the March/April newsletter from the Natural Resource Defense Council (NRDC), called "Nature's Voice." The NRDC is one of the Big Boys of environmental conservation, and a group that we have supported for years.

We were working in the middle of the Sonoran Desert, 20 miles from Mexico, when the designer called to purchase use rights. Fortunately, we were able to get back to electricity in time to send off a file and meet their deadline.

This was a smiley face on our report card because (1) we like supporting non-profit groups, (2) the newsletter has a circulation of 400,000, and (3) it paid for a couple tanks of diesel to get us home from the desert.

Now if we can just be patient, the lakes here in northwestern Montana will ice out in only another 4-6 weeks, and Nature's Voice will return to our chosen habitat.
