Nature "Conned Servancy"

Here is another article on the growing trend of calling development conservation. This one takes The Nature Conservancy to task for its ties to an Ohio developer. Warning: It is a pretty opinionated article!

"There is also a "vision" statement, though the "vision" about which she rhapsodizes actually makes substantial money for herself and TNC, while also keeping the well-heeled fashionably isolated/protected, in their gated area. Protected from what? Protected, perhaps, from the real stewards of this and other streams in my neighborhood: the Amish and Mennonite farmers that have been caring for this area for two hundred years."
