A Day in the Life of a WFTA Ranger (and an Update on $4K by 6/4)

As the Owl mentioned in a post on May 12, June 4 is National Land Trust Day and Weston has a wonderful open space and land trust non-profit named Weston Forest & Trail Association. The Owl is a trustee, and head of the stewardship area, though is never ever trusted with a chainsaw or a
