I wanted to let you know about a project Amy Keister and I have been working on. Ken and Rua met with Camp LeJeune in the fall of last year where Camp LeJeune posed a conservation question.

Last week I was fortunate to be able to attend the National LCC Workshop in Denver, Colorado. This workshop modestly expected to see about 150 people register. In the end, the registration had to be cut off at 400. I was impressed by the number of attendees, but probably more so by the diversity of the over 100 organizations represented.
