Conservation pays us back

It is an investment. Conservation of precious land in its natural state, construction of trails and parks for recreation or access, preservation of wildlife habitat or farmland — they fit the definition. They all involve the commitment of funds with expectation of a return. Call it a profit if you like.

Conservation pays. It pays dividends. We in Washington, surrounded by so much natural wealth, know this very well. Our riches are envied the world over. Open space, wild land, beautiful shores, grand vistas, magnificent peaks and rich valleys — every day we reap the rewards of wise investments past.
