Local Boots on the Ground - A note from Laudholm President Nik Charov

Nik writes:

Nothing is a replacement for local boots on the ground, though.  Fortunately, it's relatively painless to get a group of people together, wine 'em, dine 'em, and have them sign a letter or some postcards to send to their local electeds.  Case in point -- find  local restaurant and get a small portion of the night's proceeds to go to the cause, if you can pack the house:

Good luck, everyone!

I ♥ Estuaries campaign - resources and logos available

This Valentine’s Day, we want show Congress and the Administration that there is lots of love for estuaries and that cuts break our heart. In order to demonstrate support for your reserve, NERRA is joining forces to celebrate Valentine’s Day through a joint, 3-day “I heart estuaries” campaign February 12-14.  For more information on the program and details on how you can help - please check out Resources and Documents Page.  You will also find links to the campaign logo.  

Colleague Nik Charov - President of Laudholm Trust created a logo of his own (see above) and is offering it to all.  The photo can be used as shown above or customized for your reserve by changing the estuary image in the background. This image and a photo shop version (for manipulation) can be found below and on the Resources and Documents Page.  No photo credit needed!

And check out Nik's post about the campaign on The Wrack: blog of the wells reserve & laudholm trust.
