Western Reserve Land Conservancy reports on the success of a program in which Native Ohio Brook Trout were reintroduced to streams after the species was believed to have been lost forever. www.wrlandconservancy.org In 1972, Dr. Andrew White of John Carroll University found two reproducing populations of Native Ohio Brook Trout in the headwaters of the Chagrin River in Geauga County. At the time, it was believed that this species, which can survive in only the coldest and cleanest water, had died off due to pollution and development. Subsequent DNA testing confirmed that these fish were indeed the remnants of the original brook trout that lived in Ohio’s streams and rivers after the glaciers retreated some 10,000 years ago. “They were genetically tested and they are a unique population, a strain found only here in Ohio,” says Paul Pira, director of the Geauga Park District’s Natural Resource Management Program. No additional populations were found when the state surveyed streams in the Chagrin, Grand and Rocky River watersheds. But the study found 15 suitable sites for reintroduction of brook trout – very small, spring-fed streams that are completely forested. From 1996 to 2004, Native Ohio Brook Trout – raised first in a private hatchery at University School and then at a state-operated one in Castalia – were reintroduced to those creeks. Today, six or seven of the streams – all in Northeast Ohio – still have reproducing brook trout populations. In nearly each case, the properties containing the streams have been protected by county park districts and by organizations such as the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and Western Reserve Land Conservancy. This video follows Pira and two Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife biologists as they survey trout populations in one stream. The goal of the brook trout reintroduction program is to return a habitat-sensitive, native fish to its former range, not to produce a sport fishery. In fact, Native Ohio Brook Trout are listed as a threatened species. The project has reinforced the need for collaboration and land-protection in conservation efforts by a number of partners, including the state, Geauga Park District, the history museum, the Land Conservancy, Cleveland Metroparks and others.

Here's an amazing short video of water cascading down the rocks along Big Hunting Creek in Catoctin Mountain Park near Thurmont, MD. Recorded with Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Saturday May 14, 2016 at 10AM. No other Maryland trout stream has as much history as Big Hunting Creek. Big Hunting Creek was one of the first streams in the State to be stocked with trout. It was also the first stream to be designated a fly-fishing-only stream and in the early 1960's became the State's first Catch-and-Return Trout Fishing Area. Big Hunting Creek has been popular with angling Presidents, noted authors, fly fishing enthusiasts and park visitors who enjoy viewing trout in a natural mountain setting. A streamside memorial to the late Joe Brooks can be found across from the National Park Visitor Center. The entire stream within the State and Federal parks was declared a Catch-and-Return, Fly-Fishing-Only Trout Fishing Area in 1974. All stocking upstream of Cunningham Falls Reservoir was discontinued in 1975 to encourage the development of the wild trout populations. Initial efforts to manage the wild trout populations within the tailwater began in 1977 with the reduction of the hatchery trout allocation to fifteen-hundred annually and the discontinuance of all brown trout stocking. A comprehensive fishery management plan was developed during 1993, a cooperative effort between the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Cunningham Falls State Park, Catoctin Mountain National Park and various publics who share an interest in the welfare of Big Hunting Creek. Currently, the annual stocking allocation is a total of one-thousand brook and rainbow trout. Physical/ Habitat Description - In spite of its name, Big Hunting Creek can be characterized as a small, freestone stream. Just ten feet wide in the headwaters above Cunningham Falls and seventeen to twenty feet in width at the lower park boundary, anglers will find varied habitat shaded by large hemlocks and hardwoods throughout. Shallow riffles, small plunge pools, long runs and ample pocket-water with many large boulders continually challenge fly casters. The upper one-third of the tailwater has a gentle gradient with slow runs and a meandering channel. Further downstream the gradient increases with an abundance of plunge pools and pocket water. A local group, Friends of Big Hunting Creek, has installed several rock and log structures aimed at improving holding water for trout during low flows. Some anglers, however, argue the controversial artificial structures detract from the natural surroundings. Whatever your preference in small stream habitat or whether you prefer wild or stocked trout, Big Hunting Creek has something to offer most fly fishermen.

Cherry Springs State Park is a 106-acre (43 ha) Pennsylvania state park in Potter County, Pennsylvania, in the United States. The park was created from land within the Susquehannock State Forest, and is on Pennsylvania Route 44 in West Branch Township. Cherry Springs, named for a large stand of Black Cherry trees in the park, is atop the dissected Allegheny Plateau at an elevation of 2,300 feet (701 m). It is popular with astronomers and stargazers for having "some of the darkest night skies on the east coast" of the United States, and was chosen by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and its Bureau of Parks as one of "Twenty Must-See Pennsylvania State Parks". The earliest recorded inhabitants of the area were the Susquehannocks, followed by the Seneca nation, who hunted there. The first settlement within the park was a log tavern built in 1818 along a trail; the trail became a turnpike by 1834 and a hotel replaced the tavern in 1874, then burned in 1897. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries the old-growth forests were clearcut; the state forest was established in 1901 and contains second growth woodlands. "Cherry Springs Scenic Drive" was established in 1922, and the Civilian Conservation Corps built much of Cherry Springs State Park during the Great Depression, including a picnic pavilion listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). An annual "Woodsmen's Show" has been held in the park each August since 1952. This video is targeted to blind users.

Video Source: Enbridge (http://3blmedia.com/Profiles/Enbridge-Inc) 3BLMedia/ Corporate Social Responsibility/ Environmental Protection - This week, in honour of National Aboriginal Day in Canada (Friday, June 21) Enbridge will be sharing stories about our dedication to partnering with Aboriginal communities along our rights-of-way. Enbridge and a First Nation environmental organization are teaming up to protect fragile wetlands within the St. Clair River watershed in southern Ontario. In May 2011, Enbridge awarded $20,000 to the Walpole Island Land Trust through the company's Natural Legacy Program, which supports community environmental initiatives along the pipeline rights-of-way. The donation will help the Land Trust conserve the natural habitat of a 171-acre wetland marsh on St. Anne Island, just south of Sarnia. Through this partnership, Enbridge and the Land Trust will also be supporting the goals identified under the St. Clair River Remedial Action Plan by protecting additional acres of fragile habitat within the river watershed. "A donation likes this one will go a long way to helping us begin to restore the marsh's ecological functions and enhance the wildlife diversity while taking steps to control invasive, non-native plants," said Clint Jacobs, President of the Walpole Island Land Trust. The Walpole Island Land Trust, the first Aboriginal land trust to receive charitable status in Canada, was formed in 2008 to conserve and protect the land and natural resources of the Walpole Island First Nation or "Bkejwanong," meaning "where the waters divide" in Ojibwe. The region includes some of the most biologically diverse areas in Canada, including 17,000 acres of wetlands. "Our area is considered one of the largest freshwater deltas in the world. It's an important area for migratory birds," explained Jacobs, a local naturalist. Enbridge's donation will support a pilot project to conserve and restore the marsh area which was dyked more than a hundred years ago by duck hunting clubs. So far, the Land Trust, in cooperation with various community partners, has leased the marsh area on the island for a 10-year period and has begun pumping water into the marsh to maintain water flow and encourage suitable habitat for fish spawning. The Land Trust has also mapped invasive species such as the Common Reed at the site, and is exploring ways to control this plant from spreading throughout the marsh. "We want to restore the site to its old glory so that it's not only a good spot for ducks but a rich environment that supports other wildlife, including muskrats, bullfrogs, turtles and fish," said Jacobs. Another goal is to use the project to educate Aboriginal youth about traditional culture, including how to fish and hunt in the marsh in a sustainable way. "We want to bring our elders, hunters and youth together, so that we can mentor our youth regarding good hunting practices and help them to better understand the value of the marsh to our traditional way of life," said Jacobs, whose grandfather once used the marsh for hunting and fishing. "My grandfather was a hunter, fisherman and trapper and lived his entire life out on the marsh. He used to call the marsh his 'grocery store' because it provided for his family." The Land Trust also plans to train members of the First Nation community on how to conduct wildlife surveys and water quality assessments.

Tom hadn't charged his BMC's Di2 unit as we set off on my "big ring only" 68.5 mile loop from McKenzie Park tennis courts. So he did a delayed goat fest while I went solo to the coast-side, with brilliant skies and beaming sunshine between Pescadero and San Gregorio creeks, an area that had super heavy rains earlier during the week. The prior "atmospheric river" triggered mudslides, tree falls, flooded lower Pescadero, cut power, and inundated roads, but all roads were fresh, clear and clean today. Only thick chilly fog lingered at the top of Alpine Road, where I paused to add layers, and wondered whether to proceed, after my early morning climb of Moody and Page Mill Upper. Tom's plan: get his Ti bike and do Portola Redwoods and Alpine West instead of the part to Pescadero. Later, I skipped my favorite Los Amigos Taqueria in favor of a brief 5th Avenue snack along upper Old La Honda Road West. So, despite some fret about getting wet,, I went. To Show: Go To Know.

The Dolly Sods Wilderness — originally simply Dolly Sods — is a U.S. Wilderness Area in the Allegheny Mountains of eastern West Virginia, USA, and is part of the Monongahela National Forest of the U.S. Forest Service. Dolly Sods is a rocky, high-altitude plateau with sweeping vistas and lifeforms normally found much farther north in Canada. To the north, the distinctive landscape of "the Sods" is characterized by stunted trees, wind-carved boulders, heath barrens, grassy meadows created in the last century by logging and fires, and sphagnum bogs that are much older. To the south, a dense cove forest occupies the branched canyon excavated by the North Fork of Red Creek. This video is targeted to blind users.

Culturally, the Delaware Valley is taken by various commercial media and advertising venues to mean the Philadelphia metropolitan area, but geographically, geologically, and historically the term used to refer to the valley through which the Delaware River flows. In geology and geography, a strict sense of the term would incorporate the Delaware River's main drainage basin, so encompass major tributaries such as the Schuylkill River and Lehigh River and their valleys or sub-basins. These extensions also apply culturally with decreasing degree gradually decreased by proximal distance because the ease of land travel enables a great deal of daily interaction; for example, the large number of commuters which travel daily 45–90 minutes creates cultural blends and parallel values. However, this article discusses the economic region centered on the cities on the tidal part of the Delaware Valley, including the metropolitan areas centered on Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Reading, Pennsylvania; Camden, New Jersey and Wilmington, Delaware. It is roughly the Philadelphia–Reading–Camden–Wilmington, Pennsylvania–New Jersey–Delaware–Maryland (PA-NJ-DE-MD) Metropolitan Statistical Area. This video is targeted to blind users.

My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)
