“Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.”

-Chief Seattle

There is much debate on the true author of this quote.

"Periodic #OOPS#ing is an unavoidable symptom of a lifetime spent fishing: Older fishermen have been around so much beauty for so long that even a single beer can tossed on the bank of a stream looks like pure ruination- and this from men who, in our younger, wilder days, carelessly disposed of some empty beer cans ourselves. Now we pick them up, possibly as some kind of penance."

Its "Dilution is the Solution to Water Pollution"

And I always liked....

"you are either part of the Solution or part of the Precipitate" Thats more of a science geek thingy but science =conservation.

How about "we all live downstream"

I think Buggy is looking for more on the lines of Aldo Leopold quotes and Leef Wulff "a game fish is too valuable to be caught only once" or whoever the hell it was that said that....

SonofZ,

I know that quote concerns logging. But many on here would say it is true if it referred to deer, as without human intervention the herd would overpopulate and destroy the forest.

Jay, I remember reading that passage of Gierach's and immediately thought of this board.

"When they are children, young boys are magnetically drawn to streams. They move rocks around, build little dams and do all they can to conquer/change them.

When they grow up, they get more expensive toys like bulldozers, explosives and cranes, but they continue the same work they did as children."

pcray: It wasn't a letter addressing the need for deer control to avoid over browsing of the understory. It was a letter advocating cutting more timber because somehow an untimbered forest "destroys itself". The fact that trees, and forests, existed before industrial logging, and continue to do so (in lesser and lesser ammounts) proves that assumption wrong.

I have no problem with deer hunting, I am a deer hunter, and fully recognize that without managment our deer herd would damage our ecosystem and eventually starve out and propegate widespread disease. I DO wish we still had an apex predator along the lines of wolf or mountain lion in PA to help control the deer population in a manner other than hunting. I feel it reflects badly on PA's past game "managment" style that we HAVE to act as the predator to the deer herd, because we killed off everything that once did that job.
