Ed, et al.,

    Another stellar contribution. Our collective thanks. The eNTS magazines are huge and whether loaded as a single file or accessed in sections, the sheer volume may deter some from reading. This said, I wouldn't change a thing. The photography, the narratives, and information is soooo good. A further point, and perhaps the most important, is that a lot of the information in the magazine is conveniently obtainable nowhere else. This can be said of the data/information presented in virtually any scientific study, but the general public doesn't read science journals. Most folks look to popular articles in magazines, newspapers, and shows on T.V. to get information about nature, which is delivered in a pre-digested and often lightweight form. For trails in parks, people rely on trail guides, interpretive walks, or Internet summaries. If they don't get the information through one of these sources, they don't get it.

Ed,  The NTS magazine is by far the best I've seen. The articles seem to get better with each publication. It is amazing how much diversity we have in our group. I learn so much through all of you. Great stuff and fantastic job Ed as usual. Larry

Larry,

Thank you.  The magazine and its diversity is simply a reflection of what is posted to the BBS by the members.  I do try to encourage participation, but the members write the posts.  I pretty much include most of the first posts in various threads posted to the BBS.  I do chose in an arbitrary and capricious manner what posts beyond the initial post to include in the magazine and I do control what post I make myself, but the overall quality of material is a tribute to the membership.

Ed
