Regular readers (hi, mom!) know that I love culverts, those thousands of pipes/mini-bridges under that carry streams under New Hampshire roadways. They are the perfect symbol and example of the reality of dealing with climate change, which is why this blog has seen them crop up for years (e.g., “The lowly culvert is on the front lines of climate change” from 2016).
New Hampshire Public Radio understands their importance, too, as reflected in a fine piece today about a single culvert near the Great Bay: Read it or hear it here.
It includes this great quote: “I seriously doubt there’s another conservation organization on the planet that loves talking about culverts as much as the Nature Conservancy.”
