We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Protecting not just the quality of the water, but the beautiful visuals of a stream are something I am very interested in; you can click on this website for another variation on this aspect of landscape architecture:
Unfortunately, this UK group franchised with a pool group in Boston and their design skills are very weak. To get this look one would have to bring in the Brits from this group. But, it is the science mixed with art piece that I find so fascinating. Just think no chlorine in the pool and at the same time you ADD a water feature rather than mess up the one that God made himself.
Nice that they are doing this. My brother was big into stream restoration but his involved a bunch of us backpacking trout over ridge and valley to stock the upper reaches of remote streams. The rangers were happy to give us fish from the hatchery. Probably had a good laugh when as we drove off. Carrying a pack full of fish and water over barely there trails is, shall we say, challenging.
As a teenager I worked for a summer on a ranch in western Montana, near a stream similar to this one loaded with trout. After work we were sometimes able to get in a little fishing, which I enjoyed greatly (though I'm no fisherman). It is nice to see the locals are working to maintain the spectacular area so well.
