Popular Press Articles
TINS Co-Founder Will Richardson has been a regular contributor to the Tahoe Quarterly's "Natural Rhythms" feature, and in 2009, took over authorship of the feature. Here we will try to archive those and other articles that TINS has published in magazines or other popular media outlets. Please keep in mind that popular press articles go through an editorial process that often modifies the initial submission significantly.
Summer 2009 (clarification of one point of this article is required - beaver were native to the Sierra Nevada, apparently got trapped out by the early 1800s, and then were reintroduced in the 1930s and 1940s. While we don't usually point people to Wikipedia for their research, there is a fairly exhaustive treatise on the matter, with references, HERE)
Winter 2010-2011 (Note: we don't always get oversight of the images used to illustrate these articles. The "shrew" photo is actually a Four-toed Elephant Shrew (Petrodromus tetradactylus), from Kenya. It is more closely related to elephants than Tahoe's shrews!!)
