Nature Niche Appeal

Ranger Steve

Observing wild creatures has great appeal. People visit state, national, and county parks to enjoy animal antics, seasonal blooms, and tree colors. The events unfolding in yards draws us outside to enjoy sun, garden, breeze, and beauty. It is a joy to share nature niche appeal occurrences about fish, warblers, butterflies, fireflies, squirrels, moles, stars, pond life, herons, canoeing and more.

Flowers, insects, and birds thrive together allowing survival that is dependent on one another. It is revealed in intricate relationships. 

My desire is to enrich reader interest in the natural world on which we depend. 

Within our community we depend on each other in intricate ways. Covid-19 has caused havoc. I am associated with business owners that tell me their business activity and income has increased and others whose livelihoods are precariously on the edge of closing their doors permanently. 

How we pull together as a community depends on personal action. The CS Post and other papers unfortunately have been hit financially hard for a number of reasons that have been explained in a number of articles in the paper in recent years. My effort of contributing nature niche articles is a volunteer effort guided by passion to increase appeal and support for nature that is essential to sustaining community livelihood. 

It has become increasingly difficult for the Post to continue printing nature niche articles because of space cost restrictions. If nature niche articles are appealing, I suggest readers contribute financial support to keep the paper in print. Beyond the nature niche, it documents local events in a manner otherwise left as a deep void. Please send a check or stop into the office to provide support and let the staff know how important their work is to you. 

It is good to support businesses that advertise in the Post but direct personal support is also important. 

I hope to continue sharing the richness of the natural world. That depends on the community’s supportive role to help local businesses like the CS Post survive. Contribute to keep our local paper serving the community. The paper gives and we receive. Give to the paper so readers continue to receive.
