    A big one is the fisheries initiative. Lost River Whitefish & Grayling are on the docket but we’ve sent several Notices of Intent to Sue in central Idaho on Steelhead, Chinook, and Bull Trout in the past few months as well. Look for a cutthroat push in the future as well – that should be fun to write about, the history of the drainages and its genetic expression – it may give Ken some incentive to learn the difference between Chinook & rainbow trout 🙂

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
