We had been on the farm for a couple of years and were looking at drowning under doctor bills. My husband and I started talking about contacting the environmental groups about selling the development rights to our 60 acres. To do so we would have to contact any ecology group to see if they would be interested.
I was very reluctant to do so. I had a father that worked in facilities at Boeing and knew all the hoops they had to jump thru to acquire a piece of property . In some cases they would buy a piece and find out that the ecology (save the…now bunch) would tie up the property in litigation. The ecology groups would not allow building due to a Heron nesting, or an eagle feeding or a duck squatting or a horse flying or some other thing or another that might or might not be on the endangered list. I had followed the tree huggers, the mother earthers, the hippie throw backs, the recycle fanatics and all the rest. Doing their sit ins or tree hanging or protesting just to protest (yeah man we’re livin’ the dream), the property destruction, Eco-terrorism and whatever else they do. I had also followed the whole Global warming, ecology now, greenhouse gas threat, the coming ice age, the endangered species spotted owl. Of course the country forgot about the spotted owl for a time, because of global warming, but the spotted owl is back in the news. Looks like the experts think killing off another species of owl will save the spotted owl. This is the thinking of the ever elite ecologist, biologist, geomorphologist and any other ‘ologist on the band wagon for saving the earth from what? The HUMAN!
Little did I know when we found the farm we were buying right in the middle of spotted owl country.
