broken green space

In nature, when colors occur, they are generally associated with sex or danger.

This 3+ million dollar municipal project did not have the benefit of our City's design review process.
It would look better in black and white.

cedrus libani

After walking around at Montpelier, everything else is kind of a let down.

Water Quality

There are individuals and organizations in our midst who carry our water, care for our water, work tirelessly to mitigate 400 years of colonization. Heartfelt thanks Deborah Murray and all her colleagues at the Southern Environmental Law Center!

Washington, D.C. April 1, 2009
A federal court has overturned a permit issued by the Corps of Engineers for a massive impoundment in King William County, Virginia that would have resulted in the single largest, authorized loss of wetlands in the mid-Atlantic region in the last 37 years. The U.S. District Court in D.C. ruled late yesterday that the Corps' finding that the reservoir proposed by Newport News would not cause significant harm to the environment was "arbitrary and capricious."--(read more)
