"Glamping" for Stream Restoration

October 24, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

I’m not sure whether this article’s photo shows an outdoors experience or a display for Bass Pro shop’s new home furnishings department (don’t worry, they don’t actually have one yet). But it is a sign that perhaps the trend we sighted back in August (see “Glamping in Montana“) is continuing. The good news is that the tip money is apparently going to a good cause: “John’s using the tip money left by guests to restore the salmon spawning grounds in the Bedwell River. So far he’s spent $1.5 million rebuilding the river bed that had become silted following indiscriminate logging of the area.” Claire Giblin on Stuff.co.nz.
If that’s what it takes to fund stream restoration, we’re all for it.
