Marc -- Thanks very much for keeping this discussion in the realm of reality. Really appreciate your helping us keep the facts straight.
Kent -- I really dont intend to get into an on-line debate about how every past grant of the Preserves was used: we simply dont have the staffing to engage in such fruitless Monday-morning quarter-backing. So, Im happy to respond to questions you have that are constructive and substantive. Otherwise, I wont be taking the time to respond.
To answer your question about the use of the balance of the Tremaine grant, it covered the staffing, direct, and overhead costs of responding to local communities requests for biodiversity data; printing and distributing two brochures
one for local residents on green landscaping; one on community planning; and conducting and publicizing the annual Partnership lecture series.
