From where comes effective environmental stewardship?
September 25, 2009 · 4:15 PM
Last week’s decision by the County Council to remove shoreline critical areas from updates to county code for another three years is another example of the lethargy in our county offices to update environmental protections for our community.
If you want to learn more about the Critical Areas Ordinance, please read the Friends of the San Juans newsletter that will be delivered to your mailbox this week. You can also read about toxics in our water, how islanders are restoring our shorelines, the shoreline modification survey and other good environmental work going on in San Juan County.
We hope this newsletter will help inform you of the serious problems and obstacles to achieving local environmental health. And, we hope this newsletter encourages our citizenry to support strong environmental protections for our county into the future. Friends of the San Juans is proud of its 30 years of work in environmental advocacy, education, research and restoration.
