Dena's Poem and Noho's Photo

Photo by Noho, poem by Dena Eakles.


We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect. 
- Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac

There is an effort to remove local control over the use of land in Wisconsin. Please notify elected officials and tell your friends: this will not happen on our watch.

Tell the PSC to stop the Badger-Coulee proposal and to choose NO WIRE ALTERNATIVES.
