Rain Forest Monday Updates

Every Monday since December 2005 there has been a weekly upload to the pre-existing Iowa rain forest Web site I maintain. In all, printed out it would run over 100 single spaced pages; there are, in addition, links to the full text of hundreds of newspaper stories and reports. It is very probably the most complete resource on the topic anywhere on the Web.

It is found at: (Scroll down about one screen below the "Executive Summary" and click on "June 26.)

Over the past few months the scope of the Web site has expanded from the rain forest project to include the broader range of attractions and economic development generally in which the rain forest exists and by which it must be evaluated.

This week there are 22 links to more material. One goes to a collection of 23 stories, videos and a photo slideshow about Riverside. Another to the annual report (and additional interpretive news stories and editorials) about the Iowa Values Fund. And of course there's the usual commentary from the Webmaster (me) regarding the current status of the rain forest project.
