“The nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation increased and not impaired in value.”
Americans are connected to the land, wildlife and waters of our country. These natural places help fuel our economy, sustain our communities and contribute to the health and well-being of families in every corner of the nation. Nature’s Good Neighbors is a series of stories highlighting people who depend on the land as much as the land depends on them. They are entrepreneurs who manage forests, farms, ranches and fisheries. They are private landowners, land managers, tribal members, recreational guides and individuals in the energy, agriculture and timber industries. With support from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which provides expertise, assistance, funding and tools to conserve and restore wildlife habitat for future generations, these modern-day stewards are working with nature to make a home for people and wildlife.
