Continued: Anderson: Status quo on land, water issues is a threat to the state

Yet rarely have that constituency’s conservation interests manifested themselves as political force, a conundrum that won’t resolve by mere formation of a council.

Rather, however it’s done, conservation delivery (and action) in Minnesota must be organized at more local levels, rather than from the top down, as the presence of government agencies suggests will happen (but rarely does).

One idea: Form councils at regional or subregional levels, each of which would prioritize conservation opportunities in their areas, while melding the interests and energies of affected citizens with the funds, work forces and staffs of conservation groups, sportsmen’s clubs, government agencies and others.

Or perhaps you have a better idea.

If so, write me at danderson@startribune.com. I’ll publish a sampling of responses in a coming Sunday edition of the Star Tribune.
