For a river-focused funding initiative, there's no substitute for getting out in the field. This spring WRI staff had the opportunity to do just that on a tour of restoration projects in the Calapooia, North Santiam and South Santiam watersheds. We heard from farmers firsthand why they take part in habitat restoration, visited a prairie where an endangered plant thrives among cattle, and, ultimately, came away reflecting on how important relationships, adaptation and balance are in this work.

Reflection is especially important in the kind of complex, long-term work in which we're all engaged, but, let's face it - reflection is highly undervalued in a culture inclined toward immediacy. So it helps to practice it with intent. And open a window from time to time.
