We donated to honor my beloved stepbrother, Brett Strawbridge Ph.D. 1954-2015. Brett was a sportsman and outdoors-man. You can see Brett’s love of the wilderness in his article about climbing Mt. Whitney. I read it soon after he died, and I felt as if I were climbing with Brett. “Up here the air is clear and almost free of dust. And it's cold. As I breathe in the July air, it chills the inside of my nose as it rushes down into my glad lungs. This is air as the body was made to have it! The vision of the still lake across the canyon bottom is a wonder. The reflection of the peaks in it is so clear that the image is mirror perfect.” Read the full account of Brett’s hike here - http://janetleecarey.com/top-of-the-lower-48/

There is a saying I love that inspires me: "The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man". (author unknown) One does not find peace and serenity in the middle of a shopping mall. If I had the financial means to buy up all the vacant land from developers, I would so I do what I can to help by making donations.

Nature sustains all life. As the numbers of humans have increased, other species, natural resources and the delicate dynamics of ecosystems have declined. The only humane way to stop the pollution and damage is for humans to limit themselves to one child per couple for two generations therefore, cutting the human species by 3/4th in 50 or so years. Without responsible procreation, nature will continue to decline and the humane species will descend into the usual means of curtailing overpopulation; war, famine and disease.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

I believe it's our responsibility to protect, conserve and preserve all remaining aspects of Nature, that man hasn't left a footprint on, is completely obliterating or will obliterate in the future. It's easy to eliminate that which cannot or hasn't the ability to defend itself against the never ending ravages of man. I have great respect for all nature and take whatever action necessary to protect and preserve the land, major creek and animals I share a living space with. I also experience the ignorance and complete disrespect of surrounding neighbors who don't think twice before damaging the same area, scaring all wildlife away and their nesting areas, that I'm desperately trying to protect from their loud 3-wheelers tearing up the horse pastures and ripping out the creek edge growth (where the wood duck habitat used to be) to make a beach for their enjoyment. I did stop the beach plan but the damage ruined the integrity of the creek and its natural flow thereby causing major flooding in the pastures on a regular basis. I wish importance would be put on, the out of control, human population growth which, ultimately, causes endless land and wildlife destruction to accommodate more people who require more natural resources, etc. I can't help but think of us turning into a "Soilent Green" Nation. The Nature Conservancy educates people and gives me encouragement that others will realize the importance of keeping nature alive. I can't imagine living on a planet with nothing wild and natural to see anymore. Nature is what makes this planet beautiful. I can't think of anyone who hasn't mentioned a beautiful wild animal encounter or driving through a lush green territory or the stillness of a desert. People will miss them when they're gone and wish they hadn't taken all this beauty for granted. Right now I'm headed to the creek, with my camera, to watch the fish and listen to the birds. It relaxes me.

We are a wooden watch company from The Netherlands and for every sold watch we plant a new tree using Plant A Billion Trees. It would be nice if there would be a certificate for companies like mine so we can easily proof that we do what we promise. Is this possible?

Why I don't give over and above my membership - because TNC would use those funds to pay professional solicitors.
