Bundle Up…
As I write this, I realize that spring is a short 2 months away. But as much as the winter chill and shorter days can dull the mood; Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day give plenty of reasons to celebrate during this season. Although our office is a little quieter during December, our staff quickly gets busy in January planning for a new year. There is always work to be done, and we look forward to accomplishing much in 2019 in the field of conservation.
