Works of Nature

Today I went on a field trip with my daughters class to a place called the August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area. It was enjoyable to see a group of kids having fun out in nature.

While the August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area is a place that at one time (during WWII) was used to store explosives. It’s good to see that it’s been reclaimed and is now a place used for recreation. This article however, also gives you food for thought in how that process works.

It’s entitled “Wildland restoration is like marriage: An imperfect work in progress” by Rob Pudim at High Country News. What I actually found most interesting though was the commentary. It’s a process that takes time.
