I specialize in writing about land use, natural resources, horticulture, and community…various aspects of how we live on and relate to the land.

Here in North Central Washington, fire and its management has been at the forefront of our attention for the last few years.  A couple of decades ago, endangered species listings brought salmon recovery to prominence, and although it’s less in the news these days, it’s still underway, shaping the landscape, the community, and the local economy.

While those topics shape our tiny communities, we’re also forging bonds with each other, learning to live together in changing and challenging times.  It’s a rich mix, and a worthy challenge to interpret and report it.
