“They selected women knowledgeable about forestry issues in each state to lead the forestry committees. These committees have led efforts to reduce paper waste, collect litter and beautify communities by planting trees and shrubs. These groups have had tremendous impacts on state and national conservation efforts, ”said Humphries.

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, women were at the forefront of state and federal government efforts to protect watersheds, establish forest reserves, and even outlaw the practice of using feathers. ornamental birds on fancy hats of the time.

“The first Audubon societies were established in 1886 and grew to 30,000 members in six months,” said Humphries, noting that women made up more than half of the membership in 1915.

Scientific silence

As new institutions, grounded in scientific efforts, have come to the fore in natural resource management, the roles of women in the great history of conservation have mostly been silenced. Science was, after all, a field dominated by men.

“At the 1913 Conservation Congress only one woman spoke, and she was from the Red Cross. Many of the early female leaders were not invited to conservation forums and conservation has become a male occupation and advocacy, ”said Humphries.

Humphries received a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Science from Michigan State University. There were only four women in her class of 400. Surveys of university programs show that women now make up more than 50 percent of graduates in fields such as fishing, wildlife, zoology and forestry.

by Rich Larson

During this year’s legislative session, the House and Senate agreed to use $ 250 million of the money the state received from the

Senator Rich Draheim

American bailout plan to pay premium to frontline workers of Covid-19. The idea was to form a joint task force of three senators, three representatives and three members of Governor Walz’s administration who could work all summer to determine who should get the money and how much they should be paid. The governor would then call an extraordinary session, which had been tentatively scheduled for September 14, the legislature would approve the deal, and the checks would be issued shortly thereafter.

Sadly, like all other Legislative negotiations this year, the conversations turned contentious and Republicans and Democrats disagreed along party lines. Not only did the task force miss its Labor Day deadline to reach a deal, but three weeks after the deadline, there was no movement on either side.

What is at stake is what constitutes a frontline worker. Republicans argue the money should go to healthcare workers in hospitals and long-term care facilities, while Democrats support a wider dispersion to include food production workers, child care workers and even truck drivers.

State Senator Rich Draheim has said he prefers the money to go strictly to healthcare workers for several reasons.

He highlighted the shortage of health workers in the state. If nothing changes, he said, things will only get worse and the state should do everything in its power to keep these people in the careers of their choice.

He also simply argued that in order for the payments to be enough to really help, there must be fewer eligible people. The more people on the list, he said, the smaller the payments will be.

“The more people you add, the less dollars come out [to them]. So do you want a whole bunch of people to get $ 40? Obviously, people who work in a hospital, nursing home, first responders, those would be my top three choices. “

Although the working group remains in place, no further information has been provided and the scheduled extraordinary session now appears unlikely.

Kraewood talk reaches city council

During its regular meeting tonight, Northfield City Council will discuss and vote on a resolution to approve Kraewood’s preliminary development plan on the former Paulson Tree Farm property.

Local developers Rebound Partners and Schmidt Homes, along with the Stencil Group, are proposing to build 22 single and multi-family homes as well as a 100-unit apartment complex on what was once the Paulson family’s Christmas tree farm. . Like the rest of Minnesota, the city of Northfield is currently experiencing a severe housing shortage, and the city has supported development, albeit a little cautious.

There has been fierce opposition to the project from residents of the neighborhood adjacent to the property for a variety of reasons ranging from safety and traffic concerns to environmental concerns. A group of local citizens, Northfield SHED, mobilized this opposition and brought it to every meeting of the Planning Commission and City Council.

Despite opposition, the planning commission approved the preliminary platform with conditions which they detailed in a note to the council. Brett Reese of Rebound Partners said the terms are acceptable. He said development is important to the Paulson family and the city of Northfield, and development partners have taken care to ensure that the development meets the parameters the city has set for housing developments.

“If you look at the overall city plan and the land use code, it talks about infill, density, affordability, connectivity, increasing the tax base, and we think Kraewood does it all. that. And then there’s just a need for housing in Northfield and we’re trying to help meet that need.

The developers have also requested funding through the city’s tax increase to help with development. The Council will discuss it in early October. If all approvals are obtained, Reese said there was an outside chance they could break new ground this fall.

Downstream Film Festival moves to Lions-Riverside Park

And Clean River Partners will present the 5e Annual Downstream Film Festival Friday night at Lions Riverside Park.

Featuring submitted films from around the world, the festival features short films on environmental themes to promote discussion of local water and environmental issues. According to the Clean River Partners website, the films present a “multitude of ways of thinking about the environment, from narrative documentaries to experimental and animated shorts.”

Kevin Strauss, CRP’s community engagement coordinator, said the films vary in length and some are only 3 minutes long. Some of the filmmakers are widely known within their industry and have worked on other national projects, while others were created by local Northfield filmmakers. Films range from winners screened at festivals across the country to daring new student films.

The film festival, which is normally held in February, has been postponed this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Strauss said a grant from Northfield Shares enabled CRP to host the outdoor festival this year, and the town of Northfield has offered use of both the park and the town’s Showmobile.

In addition to the movies, Farmstead Bike Shop will be on-site to provide free bike safety checks and minor repairs. Patagonia will also be there with their repair tent to help fix clothes or bags.

The festival will open Friday at 6 p.m. Films will start at 7:00 a.m. and run until approximately 8:30 a.m. The festival is free, but Strauss said there will be no seating, so attendees must bring their own chairs.

North Wales company opens sustainable fashion boutique https://tailormadesotogrande.com/north-wales-company-opens-sustainable-fashion-boutique/ https://tailormadesotogrande.com/north-wales-company-opens-sustainable-fashion-boutique/#respond Sun, 19 Sep 2021 16:28:34 +0000 https://tailormadesotogrande.com/north-wales-company-opens-sustainable-fashion-boutique/

Watch the video report from ITV correspondent Carole Green.


As COP 26 approaches, tackling the climate crisis is more urgent than ever.

Consumers and businesses are urged to play their part in the fight against global warming before it is too late. The fashion industry has been criticized for its wasteful and cheap “fast fashion” production, much of which ends up in a landfill within weeks.

Now a Welsh company is promoting start-ups that say they care about protecting the environment.

Rhug Estate in Corwen offers space to open shops in its Old Forge building. This week, Flintshire-based Vinyl Bear will showcase its organic cotton and recycled polyester outerwear inspired by the North Wales landscape.

Visitors to the Rhug Estate in Corwen can shop in the new pop-up.

Gareth Kirkham, creator of Vinyl Bear, said: “Being based in North Wales, it’s no surprise that we are obsessed with the outdoors.

“We believe that being outdoors is not only good for your body but also for your mental well-being and we hope our clothing collections will keep customers nice and comfortable on their adventures.

“We are delighted to have our first pop-up store at Rhug Estate next week where we will be showcasing a variety of our line of anti-waste clothing as well as clothing for a variety of outdoor sports including cycling, running, climbing and paddle boarding. “

Lord Newborough, owner of Rhug Estate, said the response to their first pop-up shop with Casgliad was positive, adding that his customers appreciated the increased interest and range of products available there.

Emma Story, Estate Manager, said: “The markets seem slow to find solutions to the global crisis we face today and the fashion industry has come under intense scrutiny.

“So Rhug is very happy to welcome a supplier like Vinyl Bear, which is a great example of a company finding ways to address these overwhelming issues. “

Rhug Farm stocks nearly 3,000 products from local suppliers and small businesses, including its own produce at an award-winning farm store.

He opened a Drive Thru selling organic burgers in September 2018, the first in the UK.

Marion Mosquito sample tests positive for West Nile virus, community members urged to take precautions https://tailormadesotogrande.com/marion-mosquito-sample-tests-positive-for-west-nile-virus-community-members-urged-to-take-precautions/ https://tailormadesotogrande.com/marion-mosquito-sample-tests-positive-for-west-nile-virus-community-members-urged-to-take-precautions/#respond Fri, 17 Sep 2021 20:15:00 +0000 https://tailormadesotogrande.com/marion-mosquito-sample-tests-positive-for-west-nile-virus-community-members-urged-to-take-precautions/ For immediate release

MARION – City administrator James McGrail and Director of Public Health Lori Desmarais report that the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) today announced that West Nile virus (WNV) has been detected in mosquitoes collected from Marion.

The current risk level of WNV for Marion is low.

Mosquitoes are most prevalent from May to August, but remain active until temperatures drop below freezing for the first time. WNV is most often transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito. Mosquitoes carrying this virus are common throughout the state and are found in urban areas as well as more rural areas. Although the virus can infect people of all ages, people over 50 are at higher risk of serious infection.

The Plymouth County Mosquito Control Project will spray areas of Marion on Monday, September 20. Applications are made via a very low volume sprayer located on the back of a pickup truck. Typically, spraying is from the street and can travel up to 300 feet. Time permits; sprayers operate from 2 a.m. until 30 minutes before sunrise on weekdays.

In addition, the City of Marion recommends the following precautionary measures:

Avoid mosquito bites:

  • Apply insect repellant to the exterior. Use repellant with DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide), permethrin, picaridin (KBR 3023), lemon eucalyptus oil [p-methane 3, 8-diol (PMD)] or IR3535 according to the instructions on the product label. DEET products should not be used on infants under two months of age and should be used at concentrations of 30% or less on older children. Lemon eucalyptus oil should not be used in children under 3 years old. Permethrin products are intended for use on items such as clothing, shoes, mosquito nets, and camping gear and should not be applied to the skin.
  • Clothing can help reduce mosquito bites. Wearing long sleeves, long pants, and socks outside will help keep mosquitoes away from your skin.
  • Be aware of peak mosquito times. The hours of dusk to dawn are the peak hours for many mosquitoes. Consider rescheduling outdoor activities that take place in the evening or early in the morning. If you are outdoors at any time and notice mosquitoes around you, take steps to avoid getting bitten by moving indoors, covering yourself, and / or wearing repellents.

Protect your home from mosquitoes

  • Drain the standing water. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water. Limit the number of places around your home for mosquitoes to breed by draining or discarding items that hold water. Check gutters and drains. Empty unused flowerpots and wading pools, and frequently change the water in birdbaths.
  • Install or repair screens. Keep mosquitoes outside by installing tight-fitting screens on all your windows and doors.
