They Won't Feed the Bears at This Birthday Bash 26.8.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
The National Park Service is celebrating its 100th birthday this week but it is not an untarnished history. We have 59 national parks - from the steamy tropical Everglades in Florida to the alpine majesty of Denali in Alaska - that have been selected for their spectacular natural qualities. Congress in 1916 told the park service that its first and foremost responsibility was to conserve "the scenery and the natural and historic objects and wild life." Yet at times park managers over the last century have engaged in such contrary actions as exploiting wildlife, running carnival-like spectacles, allowing wholesale development and even permitting massive destruction of what makes the parks so special. One of the most egregious examples was at Olympic National Park in the Pacific Northwest, a majestic region dominated by forests of Douglas fir, red cedar, western hemlock and the iconic Sitka spruce. Loggers were upset when the Olympics were first set aside as a national park but they were appeased during ...

What To Grow In Your Forage Garden 9.7.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Pinyon syrup; acorn and cattail crackers; golden currant wine; mountain trout with Manzanita berries and willow bark. Wild-foraged foods are becoming increasingly popular as adventurous foodies connect ancient food-gathering traditions with the local terroir. But unless you have access to private lands, much wild food foraging is illegal. Native plants are protected, and harvesting them is poaching. Try the easy alternative to poaching in our public spaces and parks -- grow edible plants at home! We need more native plants, not fewer. Besides feeding yourself, you'll also support the native butterflies and birds that depend on these foods. We can forage in our gardens! When people harvest native plants in our struggling Southern California ecosystems, their impact on the plants, and the insects and animals that need them, is devastating. Taking bark, leaves, seeds, nuts and berries weakens the plants' abilities to renew themselves, reproduce, and survive brutal drought. By harvesting elderberries, for ...
