“Over more than forty years in the environmental field, I've learned that despite our best efforts natural systems are complex and often unpredictable and they will always teach us that persistence and humility are virtues. As environmental professionals we must strive to learn more, understand better, and improve our craft so that we can make a real difference. We owe it to our kids and the earth to leave it a better place than it was when we entered it.”
