One Response to Work progresses on wildlife overpass near Elko, Nevada

  1. kt says:

    The road was signed for two hour delays. I came through last night, and the Overpass was mostly done.

    Thing is: There aren’t many deer here anymore. The big fires burned a lot of country. Many areas are just ground into dirt by grazing.

    How many miles of deer-hazard fence exist on Elko BLM lands????? When will we get rid of all of that? Lots more people needing jobs could be put to work dealing with fences.

Quote

‎"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."
