One lucky participant – drawn at random from submitted forms (due by 10/15) – will win a new Raleigh bicycle from Century Cycles. The drawing will be held October 16. The number of completed forms will determine the odds of winning.

Non-point sources of pollution (like soil erosion and impervious surfaces) are now a greater threat to water quality than industry.
American chestnut used to be one of the dominate species in our forests. In the early 1900s, a fungus nearly wiped out the species. Lumber, called wormy chestnut, was harvested from those dying trees.
