    Thanks for bringing this story to the world. We have had very similar experiences on our own property. While we started off with some simple ideas about getting the cows out of the creek, it became clear that riparian projects have a big effect on…everything. One thing I’ve noticed is how difficult it is for many people to accept the idea that when we take better care of the water and wildlife, we actually make more money.

    Bravo to everyone involved, and keep up the good work.
