Climate Change Rant

Action Items for Nature Conservation and Sustainable Living

I had this dream last week – very detailed – about working on my website.

Wolves in California for the 1st Time in 85 Years

This is both thrilling and depressing all at the same time. The San Francisco Chronicle reported several days ago (on December 30th, actually) that a wolf crossed over into California for the first time in 85 years – since they were extirpated from the state (although I wonder about individuals who might have migrated undetected).
