"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Practice Catch-And-Release Fishing

The project:
Release back into the wild any and all fish caught during family backpacking trip into the wilderness.

Hours to catch, moments to release.

From Backpackin

Why bother?
While I really love to eat fresh fish, super fresh fish, we'd packed plenty of food for us all. And the fish in this area are numbered. By leaving them behind, we hope they'll grow stronger, repopulate and make for more challenging fishing days in the future.

Worth it?
My mind says, "Yes."

My tastebuds say, "What, are you KIDDING me?!"
