Vancouver Island; Oyster River Enhancement Society

I happened to see this wonderfully inspiring video via Zac Whyte this evening and decided it was worth it's own blog entry. The best way I can describe how I felt while watching this thoughtful video can be best described through this quote:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead

It's wonderful to see how much of a difference people can make with cooperation, teamwork and a common passion for nature.
