Conservation New England

Past, Present, & Future

"Conserve and be mindful in good conscience of future generations.  They will want oysters and quahaugs, mackeral and cod, and they may need even whales.  The Mayflower fathers could suck the abundance of the seas but their children proudly looking over their genealogies in the eighth and ninth generations must mind their soils and their sea bottoms.  It is a delicate task to live well in relation to the earth mother and in due regard for all her children."
                                        -- Albert Perry Brigham (1920)
