Open Space Seattle:2100

(Green) Space Invaders

If you did not see it above the fold and bright as day on the front of today's PI, there was an very indepth article about the health of Seattle's urban forests. The article focused two of our coalition groups, the Seattle Urban Nature Project and the Cascade Land Conservancy's Green Seattle Initiative . I particularly enjoyed the mysterious, gloomy, foggy yet utterly magical picture of Nelson Salisbury, hands lifted in explanation--or is that adulation--to the tree tops in a dripping forest.

As a follow-up: the Cascadia Scorecard Weblog has a good discussion about the argument for urban nature vs. ecosystem bang-for-the-buck.
