Real Men Don't Burn

In 2006 the Laulau watershed was burned by deer hunters during the month of May. We've been lucky this year that no one has burned our revegetation project.

There is almost no way to police the area, so we just keep our fingers crossed that no one burns it this year.

Yesterday was the rainiest day that Saipan has had since the beginning of February; it rained on and off the entire day. I hope that the rain is a signal that the rainy season is on the way.

Once it starts raining again it will be difficult to burn the entire hillside. Like I said, our fingers are crossed.

It would a real disappointment if all of our hard work from last year went up in flames.
