12 The Julian News 00EARTH TALK00 Questions & Answers About Our Environment Dear Earth Talk: What is :* the Obama •administration's 'America's Great Outdoors ?initiative and what does it hope i: to accomplish? ::. : -- Doug St. James, :::" New York, NY President Obama signed a Presidential Memorandum in April i2010 establishing the America's Great Outdoors Initiative to promote and support innovative community-level efforts to conserve outdoor spaces and reconnect Americans to the :outdoors. The Memorandum i!calls for collaboration among :::the Departments of Interior :.iand Agriculture as well as :;:the Environmental Protection Agency and the White House's own Council on Environmental Quality in leading the initiative. ::Eight other federal agencies :'ip!ay a supporting role--and :iliterally thousands of other :i:partners from state, local and :tribal governments, non-profits and the private sector are involved as well. Getting young people, especially city kids, into the outdoors to experience our country's unique natural •heritage is a top priority of America's Great Outdoors. Before pursuing any specific strategies, initiative leaders solicited feedback from everyday Americans as to what mattered most to them regarding conservation and access to the outdoors. Some 105,000 written comments and many more spoken ones from "listening sessions" held coast to coast streamed in and were crucial to the development of programs. Public feedback continues to shape the initiative's agenda. Some of the programs that fall under the umbrella of America's Great Outdoors include: the Veterans Fire Corps, which employs veterans in forest " fire management; the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's program providing technical training and work opportunities for underserved youth in habitat restoration and fisheries monitoring; and the establishment of a new network of "water trails" coast to coast to increase everyone's access to the outdoors. America's Great Outdoors was in the news recently when Interior Secretary Sally Jewell announced the launch of 21st Century Conservation Service Corps as part of the program. "21CSC," as Jewell calls it, aims to be a modern incarnation of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) that PresidentFranklin Roosevelt used to help put Americans back to work during the Great Depression. Jewell i President Obama's America's Great Outdoors Initiative seeks to promote and support community efforts to conserve natural spaces and reconnect : :Americans to the outdoors.

Part of what makes America's Great Outdoors unique is that partners from every sector of American society--not, just the federal government--are encouraged to help. 21CSC is partially funded by a $1 million dollar donation from clothing retailer American Eagle Outfitters, and Jewell is in search of another $19 million from other private sector partners to turn the program into a potent force for reducing youth and veteran unemployment while giving our endangered lands and waterways some much-needed attention. Environmentalists may be disappointed that the Obama administration hasn't been able to muscle through mandatory greenhouse gas emissions cuts and put Sustainability concerns at the forefront of the policymaking process, but getting unprecedented numbers of Americans involved in conservation projects that protect the nation's treasured natural heritage is a worthy conservation legacy in its own right. The program is sure to positively impact generations of Americans for decades to come. CONTACTS: America's Great Outdoors, www.doLgov/ americasgreatoutdoors/," 21CSC, www. doi. gov/21c sc/.

Under the PACE program,the County compensates willing agricultural property owners for placing a perpetual easement on their agricultural property that limits future uses and eliminates future subdivision potential. As a result, the agricultural land is preserved and the property owner receives compensation that can make its continued use for agriculture more viable. To date, the program has permanently protected 782 acres of ranch and farmland through the acquisition of agricultural conservation easements, exceeding the program's original goal of protecting 500 acres. The Board of Supervisors received a report on the Pilot Phase of the County's PACE Program Dec. 4, 2013 and voted unanimously to direct staff to pursue the acquisition of easements for the 16 remaining properties identified during the Pilot Phase of the Program and to extend PACE into a permanent program. The Board also directed staff to prepare a mitigation component that will allow easement land acquired under the PACE program to be utilized as off-site mitigation for agricultural impacts resulting from private projects. For additional information on the PACE program, please contact Matt Schneider at or 858-694-3714. Home Of The Future Features Energy-Saving Devices (NAPS) -- Keeping your home comfortable doesn't have to mean costs that go through the roof. Here's a look at some of the latest technology that can be seen in a model home designed to showcase energy efficiency, The New American Home (TNAH), created by the National Association of Home Builders Leading Suppliers Council. "I-NAH 2014 uses green building and construction technology, including a solar water heater, photovoltaic panels and closed spray- foam insulation. One of the more effective energy-saving components is also one of the least expensive: sealed electrical wall boxes. A problem for most homeowners is that the electrical boxes on exterior walls let drafts in. In response, electrical components manufacturer Thomas &Betts has come up with a clever way to eliminate this energy drain. The Carlon Draft-Tight boxes feature a gasketed front fi ange that provides a seal from the box to the back of the drywall and gaskets over cable entry points to prevent airflow from getting into the house. This saves heating costs in winter and cooling in the summer. It can also reduce construction costs. By eliminating the need to caulk or seal the boxes after installation, the builder can save about fi ve hours ofinstallation time for a 2,200-squarefoot house. The design is also available for ceiling boxes and multigang outlets, and can be put in already built homes as well as new ones. You can find these boxes at home improvement centers or ;talk to your electrician about having them installed. For further information on these energy-saving devices, go to January 15, 2014 ii, t 1.

If you live near a lake or pond and your tree is chemical-free, toss branches into the water to make sheltering habitat for fish. Use branches as "starters" for an outdoor firepit. - Brenda Weaver , Source: © 2013 by King Features Syndicate, Inc.
