Local innovation and initiative can help us better understand how to protect our environment.
What's near and dear to my heart is cooperative conservation.
Especially with the predators, one of the things that gets these programs going on a local level is for our land management agencies to build partnerships with surrounding communities and landowners.
I think that our cooperative conservation approaches get people to sit down and grapple with problem solving.
I spend a year at the Hoover Institute at Stanford, researching market approaches to air pollution control.
