Stewardship at the Fields

 

     Stewardship is a responsible approach to planning and managing resources (thanks Wikipedia).

 

     I don’t “own” Bellamy and Watson Fields. I manage them. Nobody “owns” the earth. We take turns managing little pieces of it.

 

     Since it’s my turn to manage the Fields and, in a curious twist of fate, their seasonal residents, the magnificent Monarch butterflies are under profound environmental stress, I started the Fields campaign to help the Monarchs.

 

    Hannah Allen, from Bellamy activities’ department and her father, Paul, are stewards too. They brought us the resources to host a generation of developing Monarchs, which were then released after a suitable sendoff from our guests.

 

     Enjoy the Monarch People and the butterflies!
