“This work is so important right now because we need to act. We have beautiful places that are in jeopardy of being lost. We have already lost so much. I think especially coming out of something that we collectively experienced, like COVID, with us being here in this beautiful place we know that when our world became much smaller the ability to get out and be around water, around the environment, really helped us. We need these things, and we also need to work together. It’s not just one partner or one stake holder’s ability to do all the multifaceted things that help protect our water, our watersheds, and our wetlands.”
