Responsibility. Seems it always comes back to responsibility. As stewards of the land we are responsible to use the resource wisely. Sounds good, but what does it really mean? Improve, restore, preserve? Yes, that should be part of it. What about using the resource to educate, inform and provide examples to other land owners? What about a stewards responsibility to learn more about the resource? What about responsibility to educate children about ecology?
Seems just plain hard work and dedication to your land is only just a small part of what we are responsible for.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
