  • Thanks to Sen. Sherrod Brown, from Ohio, for pushing the Clean Water Restoration Act, which would protect wetlands and other aquatic resources across the state. [Info]
  • On April 25, the Ohio Environmental Council will begin its annual series of tours showcasing the beauty of the Buckeye State. On tap this year are a wading trip through Big Darby Creek and a tallgrass prairie walk.
  • Here's a fantastic story about how federal money could benefit the Great Lakes, the most important of America's natural resources. (Yes, I'm biased.)
  • Join amateur outdoor photographers this Saturday, April 5, for the Photo Prowl at Blendon Woods in Westerville.
