In his March 2011 NRDC 'Switchboard' blog post entitled "A Trip to Sustainaville," Benfield lays out his vision for what a model of sustainable communities could look like, with neighborhoods sporting healthy amounts of green space and shared vegetable gardens; mass transit, biking and walking replacing the majority of automobile traffic; and mixed use communities where schools, residences and commercial spaces are near each other and are powered by solar panels, geothermal heat pumps or windmills. According to the Vermont- based Institute for Sustainable Communities (ISC), sustainable communities are "economically, environmentally and socially healthy and resilient" and meet "challenges through integrated solutions rather than through involvement as well as leadership that is inspiring, effective and responsive. Some of the ways ISC has worked to further its goals include helping teach leaders from low income U.S. communities along the Gulf of Mexico how energy efficiency and ecological restoration can revitalize their otherwise struggling economies; developing community sustainability initiatives throughout war-ravaged parts of Kosovo, Serbia and Macedonia; installing green roofs on residences in the Chinese city of Shenzen as a pilot project to show how such "technologies" can yield significant carbon sequestration and other environmental benefits, and many more. coalition of sustainability- oriented organizations and managed by the Washington, DC-based non-profit CONCERN Inc.

(There is more poodle dog bush, which is pretty to see, not to touch.) This trail is absolutely amazing. This year I have a better understanding of the slice of humanity that exists on the trail. You get every slice of the human pie when it comes to people on the trail, as you would off the trail. Once again, it is an incredible trail. I returned to Tehachapi on Wednesday, 6/13 heading onward to Canada. First, a stop the bakery in Tehachapi, back to the trail and I will be in the Sierras' in 5 days. The reports are little to no ice this year and rock hopper creeks instead of torrents of water I experienced last year ready to knock you on your rump. The crow is great bird to watch and it's my favorite animal this year. They are everywhere and it's easy to recognize some of their special talents. Go take a hike and enjoy! 602 total miles on the trail Stephen Harkins aka "Special Delivery" Tips For High School Graduates (NAPSA)-School may soon be out if you are a graduating senior, but that doesn't mean you don't have homework.
