Are you people seeing this?  I am getting a bad feeling.  My actions more generally of interest to the USDA and things are looking a little iffy there as well.

Find ways for people not already interested in natives to value them.

If the emails I get from my elected "representatives" are any indication, almost all conservation is pretty much in the crosshairs.

Yes, broad swathes of federal work to promote conservation along with clean air and water are under attack. Soon we'll hear that it's perfectly OK to dump coal ash in rivers, etc., at the rate we're going.

I am not sure my farmers are backing those changes.  Most actually interested in conservation.  It is others not coming into contact with natural resources.

NC got rid of several important conservation-related tax incentives a few years ago.
